The International Automobile Federation (FIA) recognizes the commitment of the NIO 333 team to sustainability by awarding the highest level of environmental certification through the FIA 3 Star Accreditation, joining a select group of teams to have such distinction in Formula E.
The green plans, management and actions have allowed the organization to take this recognition after demonstrating a real interest in combating climate change through its #TogetherWeCanMakeItBetter campaign, where issues such as bio-diversity and waste management were addressed.
“FIA congratulates NIO 333 on receiving Three Star status within FIA’s Environmental Accreditation, the highest level of certification in our framework. This achievement demonstrates the strong commitment of the team to environmental sustainability,” said Jean Todt, President of the highest motorsport organization.
To obtain this accreditation, teams must meet requirements to prove their commitment to the environment, as well as providing proper documentation of everything they have done to support their deserving status. NIO 333 joins ROKiT Venturi Racing, Mahindra Racing, Envision Virgin Racing, Mercedes-EQ and Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler as holders.
“In the past season, besides competing at the world’s most competitive motorsport championship, the NIO 333 Formula E team has also actively taken on social responsibility and strived to be a leader for the cause of sustainable development,” sentenced Vincent Wang, the CEO of the team.
