The Extreme E was born with a fairly clear fundamental basis: reducing carbon emissions until they are completely eliminated, and a clear example is that the new off-road electric SUV competition, far from making a call to have a large audience, has opted to offer their exciting careers through digital platforms and TV.
The competition takes into account that 30% of the planet’s CO2 emissions come from different means of transport. Considering the aforementioned, Extreme E has chosen to mobilize all their logistics through a ship specially designed for the occasion: the ST. Helena.

In addition, in order to reach a net zero carbon footprint at the end of the season, the organization has committed to compensate those that it cannot avoid, through global programs certified by ALLCOT. This balance, aims to appease the 20K tons of CO2 that they estimate, will leave the series in the inaugural year.
Targets in the crosshairs
Extreme E is already part of the United Nations Sports for Climate Action Framework, an agreement that encourages sports organizations to fight climate change through the 5 principles mentioned below:
– Promote greater environmental responsibility.
– Reduce the overall climate impact of sports.
– Use your platform to educate climate action.
– Promote sustainable and responsible consumption.
– Defend climate action through your communications.
Unlike other series, the Extreme E tries to show a contrary face in the call of fans. The new category will not have attendance, that is, all followers will see the show through live television, YouTube and social networks, as well as through a series of documentaries.
It is important to mention that each team may have 8 people on stage, who will be distributed as follows: 5 mechanics, 1 engineer and two pilots (one man and one woman).
