The award is the Association's highest level of environmental recognition and follows a full audit and evaluation in September.
The FIA Environmental Accreditation Programme is based on existing best practices and aims to support motorsport stakeholders by quantifying and improving their environmental position.
The Three-Star certification demonstrates AMF1's introduction of a clear and consistent management system to maintain environmental commitments at the highest level of the framework. It credits the team's commitment to a more sustainable future in motorsport.
Over the last year, the team has been working hard to establish environmental and societal programmes of improvement, including the reduction of single-use plastics both trackside and at our headquarters; better waste management; the introduction of an all-staff electric car scheme, as well as the launch of our philanthropic programme, Make A Mark.
Significantly, the award recognises the building of AMF1's new state-of-the-art factory, which is set to include many best-in-class sustainable and environmental systems and processes.
Mike Krack, AMF1 Team Principal, said:
"I am pleased that we have received our FIA Three-Star Environmental Accreditation. The award demonstrates our commitment to provide solutions to sustainability challenges through our people, operations, and practices.
"We acknowledge that we are still at the start of our journey – there is still so much more that we can achieve as we continue to focus on implementing sustainable systems across the team and raise further environmental awareness."
Felipe Calderón, President of the FIA Environment and Sustainability Commission, added:
"We are delighted that Aston Martin F1 Team has earned Three-Star Environmental Accreditation from the FIA. The framework exists to help all stakeholders achieve greater standards in their sustainability programmes, and to demonstrate commitment to maintaining and improving those practices moving forward.
"The Three-Star standard is the very highest achievable: it clearly demonstrates best practice and underlines the progress and effort undertaken by the team to achieve it and to develop and advance a more responsible culture."
