Global motorsport governing body the FIA has selected Siemens Digital Industries Software as a key partner to help it improve sustainability in F1 and other racing championships. This means that the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio is the specified tool to be used by F1 teams – and the FIA – in the design and development of greener race cars with reduced energy consumption and emissions.
“As innovation and sustainability are two of the most important guiding principles of the FIA, we are pleased to welcome Siemens as an official supplier and to adopt their sustainable software solutions across our work on Formula 1 and other motorsport activities. Innovative collaborations such as this underline our commitment to becoming net zero carbon by 2030,” said Mohammed Ben Sulayem, president of the FIA.
Cedrik Neike, member of the managing board of Siemens and CEO of Digital Industries, added, “Motorsport and sustainability sound like a contradiction, but [sustainable motorsport]can be done using the right technologies. If motorsport achieves carbon neutrality, any industry can. With this collaboration, we plan to influence public perceptions and promote sustainable mobility. We are delighted to be selected as an official supplier to help the FIA meet its sustainability goals.”
Having achieved carbon neutrality and obtained ISO 14001:2015 certification in 2021, the FIA is continuing to explore new areas for development. The partnership builds on Siemens’ well-established relationship with the FIA and previous projects to drive digital transformation at the FIA.
