Extreme and the Sustainable Championships Index
It should be noted that the Sustainable Championships Index annually conducts an analysis of the environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance of motorsports championships worldwide.
In this edition, 106 two- and four-wheel vehicle championships have been evaluated, using 25 sustainability performance criteria in six key areas: certifications, accreditations and awards; environmental performance; social performance; engagement and partnerships; and sustainability focus.
Thus, the sustainability scores of the championships are divided into five levels: high, medium-high, medium, medium-low and low, and Extreme E has received recognition as one of the best performing championships, as the series continues to excel in showcasing electric SUVs and futuristic technologies in some of the world’s most remote and challenging environments.
