Toto: Why Sustainability Is So Vital to the Team

Our focus as a Formula One team is all about delivering maximum performance. Whether it’s at Brackley and Brixworth or trackside.

Delivering performance in a sustainable way continues to be a priority for us; our ambition is to become the world’s most sustainable professional sports team. It’s a big challenge to take on, but one we’re relishing.

"Performance at any cost, without thought of the wider repercussions, is no longer acceptable in today's world," says Toto Wolff, our Team Principal & CEO. "Performance needs to be achieved within societal and planetary boundaries. But being sustainable doesn’t have to mean compromise. "Delivering sustainable high performance has become a guiding principle in the way we now operate. As a motor-racing team we’re judged by our track-record and performance; and the same must hold true for sustainability as we continue to embed it through the whole business."

Our work on sustainability doesn't just cover the Environmental element. That's just part of our ESG strategy. Social, which includes topics like diversity, inclusion, charity, community, healthy, safety and wellbeing and Governance (risk management, ethics and compliance, statutory responsibility) are also incredibly important to us.

As a sports team who races on a global platform, we have a responsibility to compete in a sustainable way which is conscious of our environment, surroundings and community. Doing so makes us stronger as a team, as well as being better for wider society.

Over the last year, we have grown our sustainability activities to get a better understanding of our impact on the planet and our role within society, and to further explore ways in which we can improve. Hitting the brakes isn’t an option.

We are working hard on investing in initiatives that will help us become more sustainable. As Toto explains: "It's vital that we approach this challenge in the same way as we approach everything: as a race to the finish line. Our aim is to always raise our standards and set the benchmarks within our sport and outside it."

Our 2023 Sustainability Report outlines in detail the progress we have made over the past 12 months on these important topics and what we are looking to do in the future. We take great pride in all the initiatives and projects that have been completed or are ongoing, but there’s still so much more we want to do.

"We're committed to delivering innovative initiatives to meet our goals in 2023 and beyond," says Toto.

"The race is on."
