Mugello tops new sustainability index
MUGELLO, Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya and Paul Ricard have topped a new sustainability index produced by Enovation Consulting and Right Hub.
The study, titled ‘Racing towards a sustainable future: a review of the disclosed sustainability performance of international racing circuits’, used industry-specific and United Nations criteria to analyse and evaluate how environmentally-friendly tracks are globally.
A total of 96 circuits were analysed, with only 31 demonstrating sustainable practices which met the criteria. Seven tracks were deemed to have plans that demonstrate a medium to high sustainability performance, with three of those showing a good stage of implementation.
The report discovered that Mugello in Italy is the most sustainable circuit. The track hosts MotoGP events and was the home of Formula 1’s Tuscan Grand Prix in 2020.
Mugello uses 100 per cent renewable energy and produces 25 per cent of that using solar panels. Several water bottle refill points and a rainwater recovery system have also helped it improve its sustainability.
