DHL renewed the partnership with Formula E and they will continue their commitment to promoting e-mobility, smart cities and low-carbon lifestyles.

As part of the agreement, DHL remains Official Founding and Logistics Partner to the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship and will continue to transport over 415 tons of the all-electric motorsport World Championship’s freight – including all race cars, batteries, charging units, and media and broadcasting equipment – helping Formula E with a tailored, multi-modal transport approach that maximizes efficiency and reduces CO2 emissions.

Launch of DHL & Formula E Together Green Award

The renewed partnership will see on and off-track initiatives that highlight the joint DHL-Formula E commitment to environmental and social responsibility – and underscore DHL’s role as a sustainability pioneer in the logistics industry.

Estesa la partnership tra DHL e Formula EAs part of the relationship, DHL will have exclusive rights to the DHL & Formula E Together Green Award, unearthing sustainability heroes across the globe. A local hero will be recognized at each ABB Formula E race location in Season 8, while accepting global nominations from individuals and organizations throughout the season for the inaugural award. The award winner will be announced at the end of season gala dinner in Seoul. DHL’s aim is to honor everyday sustainability heroes as global brand and sustainability ambassadors – to recognize their ability to shift attitudes through awareness, and call attention to the power of positive action, however small, in building a more sustainable future.

Other joint Formula E x DHL initiatives of the enhanced partner package include DHL’s “Legacy Program” – with activities such as tree planting, a city street-art mural utilizing carbon absorbing paints, participation in community engagement at key Formula E race locations as well as DHL’s involvement in the “FIA Girls On Track” project, with on- and off-track activities to introduce young women (8 -18) to a potential career in motorsport.

Sustainable transport solutions

In 2021, DHL delivered the most sustainable season ever in terms of Formula E logistics, using biofuel for all road and sea freight from Formula E testing in Valencia 2020 up to the final race of the Season 7 Championship in Berlin, managing to offset all emissions for Formula E’s road and ocean freight two years ahead of schedule, and offsetting 611 tons of CO2 emissions (the same as 49,000 trees).

For the upcoming 2022 season – the most extensive season ever, with a record 16 races, including three new cities (Vancouver, Jakarta and Seoul) – DHL looks to build on these accomplishments by gradually reducing the footprint of its air freight operations. With its slogan “Change.Accelerated”, the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship promotes electric mobility as a zero-emissions alternative to combustion engines and provides a platform for automotive manufacturers to develop and test new e-mobility technologies. The Gen3 racing car, scheduled for the 2022-23 season, will be the world’s most efficient racing car and is Formula E’s fastest, lightest and most powerful car to date. It is capable of a top speed of 320 km/h and regenerative braking will produce at least 40% of the energy consumed during a race.
