Formula 1 and DHL extend partnership to reduce emissions


Formula 1 and logistics partner DHL have extended their 20-year partnership to help the motorsport reduce emissions.

In 2023 the use of biofuel-powered trucks during the F1 European leg of the season resulted in an average reduction of logistics related carbon emissions of 83% per truck. This year the biofuel-powered fleet has doubled to 37 trucks.

DHL has also switched to using more fuel-efficient Boeing 777 planes that have led to a 17% reduction in carbon emissions.

For select European races on the 2024 calendar, DHL will use a new paddock motorhome that will further reduce carbon emissions. Equipped with solar panels, charging and recycling stations, the motorhome will be launched later in the season and transported using a biofuel-powered truck.

F1 director of commercial partnerships Jonny Haworth said: “As our longest-standing partner, DHL have become such a crucial part of the delivery of our events, so we’re delighted to continue that successful collaboration for many more years.

“Our partnership has seen the sport transform and grow, and DHL have been hugely supportive in our transition to become a more sustainable sport.

“This will continue to be key as we move towards 2030 and as sustainable logistics continue to develop, I look forward to seeing the positive innovations that come next.”
