The award-winning actor and global environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio will chair the organisation’s newly-created Formula E Sustainability Committee.
This body will focus on Formula E’s contributions to promoting the mass use of electric vehicles, focusing particularly on urban mobility. The long term imprint of Formula E on the cities where it races, in both infrastructure and education terms, will be also a focus point of the committee.
As a forum for major global corporations who are all linked by a common concern for sustainability, the committee will drive a greater level of social responsibility in how they do business. The committee will meet to exchange ideas on how to tackle some of the world’s most pressing environmental issues.
Leonardo DiCaprio will be joined on the committee by the CEOs of the Championship Partners and Shareholders, as well as Alejandro Agag, CEO of Formula E Holdings.
The primary goal of Formula E – the FIA global electric racing championship – is to promote electric vehicles with the purpose of changing the perception of electric cars and to promote new technologies for cleaner mobility.
