Car manufacturer Mercedes-Benz has announced plans to achieve carbon neutrality by the end of this year.

The company aims to be a decade ahead of Formula One – which says it will have a net-zero carbon footprint by 2030.

‘Renewable sources’

According to Euro Sport, Team Principal at Mercedes Toto Wolff said: “By this summer, we will be receiving all our energy from renewable sources, which is something that we are very proud of.

“[There are] little deep gains that you can get around not using plastics, and trying to optimize our carbon footprint generally by using different generators and fuelling them in a different way.

“We will be net carbon zero as a team by the end of 2020. And that is something that we are very proud of, and shows that it’s going in the right direction.”

‘Taking action’

The announcement was welcomed by pro-race driver Lewis Hamilton, who added: “I’m very fortunate that I get to work very, very closely with Toto and the team. And Mercedes, it’s great to see the communication is constantly improving within our organization.

“Now Toto is talking about this year being carbon neutral and being the leaders in our industry, I think that’s really, really key and important.

“Because I think in us making a change and taking action, I think the others will react and do the same thing. So we’re starting that, I’d like to think we’ve kind of been the catalyst in that movement.”
