As environmental issues are becoming increasingly important to consumers and businesses, the Lotus F1 Team, always ahead of the pack, placed increasing emphasis on reducing its carbon footprint in 2012. In pursuit of a more robust environmental strategy and to support existing policies at the team’s headquarters in Enstone, Oxfordshire, Lotus F1 Team entered into a multi-year partnership with AGT.
Lotus F1 Team’s CEO, Patrick Louis, commented,
“Lotus F1 Team takes environmental concerns very seriously, and this has long been the case for teams based at Enstone. The site of the team’s headquarters is itself based in a former quarry with every effort made to limit the impact on the local environment. We are currently scrutinising every aspect of our business, so to have a new perspective from AGT who have the particular objective of minimising our environmental impact is invaluable”.
The new relationship with AGT will see every aspect of Enstone come under greater scrutiny than ever before, with the objective of minimising carbon emissions from all processes and procedures at the race team’s base. AGT also aims to work with Lotus F1 Team partners to help achieve their environmental plans and Corporate Social Responsibility goals.
In return, the AGT logo will appear on the Lotus F1 Team E20 cars driven by the 2007 F1 World Champion Kimi Räikkönen and the 2011 GP2 World Champion Romain Grosjean. This and other important team branded items, have served to raise awareness of the verified carbon market and the invaluable projects that it supports, among the vast audience that Formula 1™ reaches.
…and here’s something else worth knowing – under its various guises, Lotus F1 Team have won 3 F1™ World Championships: Michael Schumacher 1995, Fernando Alonso 2005/06. Best of luck to the team for the remainder of the 2012 season!
