Due to their hard work on reducing carbon footprint, the Formula E team ROKiT Venturi Racing has received the FIA 3-Star Environmental Accreditation, an award given to environmentally friendly organizations that meet a rigorous evaluation carried out by the FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile).
The news was released by the squad through its Twitter account (@VenturiFE), on a tweet where it made clear its commitment to create spaces promoting a carbon-free future.
“Today we celebrate our FIA 3-star Environmental Accreditation, while keeping an open mind and aware of the ever-evolving ways to reduce our carbon footprint,” said the team.
At the end of May, manufacturer Audi also earned the accreditation, which was also achieved by Formula 1 teams, Mercedes-AMG Petronas and Ferrari.

Besides the teams, the F1 and Formula E categories have also been awarded the prestigious distinction, created to achieve a carbon-neutral motor racing sector by 2050, among other reasons.
Venturi seals the commitment with the well known 100% electric single-seater series, where it has put all its efforts not only to reduce carbon emissions to really low numbers, but also to compensate them.
Founded back in 2013 and based in the Monaco Principality, ROKiT Venturi Racing was born to compete in Formula E. The main promoters have been the manufacturer Venturi and the prominent American actor, Leonardo DiCaprio.
It has been participating in the series since it was inaugurated in 2014, and since then, it has disputed 84 races, achieving 11 podiums and 3 victories.
Recently, the team was in the spotlight for hiring Brazilian driver Lucas di Grassi, who will be paired with veteran Edoardo Mortara.
