F1 seems to turning greener. Known to be a gas guzzling sport for years, Formula One is now looking at cutting down on carbon footprint in a major way. In a move that could take it miles ahead in conservation, the Formula One Teams Association (FOTA) has decided to bring to the fore an analysis that could help cut emissions up to 15 per cent in three years.
FOTA had commissioned an analysis by Trucost to gauge total life-cycle emissions from all operations. The effort may be seen as a follow up to efforts from sponsors who have been pushing for a greener sport. With this, the sport would become the first to have a comprehensive and externally audited carbon reduction program. Initiatives would also aim at doubling of energy efficiency in engines.
