McLaren receive FIA award for environmental excellence

Feb 15 2013, 6:18am CST | by

Woking (Surrey), Feb 15 (IANS) McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 team has become first motor sport stakeholder in the world to receive the FIA Institute's Environmental Award.

Woking (Surrey), Feb 15 — McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 team has become first motor sport stakeholder in the world to receive the FIA Institute's Environmental Award.

The award is part of a broader initiative between the FIA, the world body of motorsports, and the FIA Institute aimed at evaluating and reducing the environmental impact of motor sport.

It is also the highest level attainable within the FIA Institute Sustainability Programme, which helps motor sport stakeholders to measure, improve and be recognised for their environmental performance.

Organisations that sign up are rated against three levels of environmental performance, so measuring their achievement and providing a benchmark against which to improve.

Shortly after the scheme was announced, in June 2012, McLaren applied for accreditation and underwent a series of stringent assessments set out by FIA Institute environmental experts. The F1 team achieved the highest level through demonstrating a commitment to continual improvement and impressive environmental awareness throughout the entire organisation.

FIA president Jean Todt said: "McLaren's award is an important step in the recognition by motor sport of the social responsibility our community must acknowledge if our championships are to remain in tune with the key environmental debates we are all a part of. The FIA and the FIA Institute are researching the environmental impact of motor sports across all our world championships."

My New 1999 Trek 7300...

Oct 29 2014 12:42am CDT | Source: Bike Forums

I bought a new Trek 7300 back in 1999. But I never rode it very much and it sat in my garage for 15 years. I've spent most of my time since then riding recumbent bikes. I recently made a foray into small folding bikes and learned a few things about comfort on a traditional diamond frame bike. So I thought about my 15 year old 7300, and applied some of the lessons learned. I changed the saddle to a Selle Roy ...

Car Free - the small sacrifices

Oct 27 2014 9:09pm CDT | Source: Bike Forums

I'm riding home from work this evening, down a residential street. It was garbage day, so all the wheeled garbage bins are lining the street. I see this guy pull into his driveway, stop, hop out of his car, and pull his garbage bin from the curb to just along side of his car. Then he hops back in his car, reaches out his window, and proceeds to pull his car into his driveway, while towing his rolling ...

Advice/recommendation needed

Oct 10 2014 8:36pm CDT | Source: Bike Forums

Hi guys, I'm new to this and I'm hoping to get some advice on which bicycle to get. I wish to ride my bicycle to work on a daily basis. It needs to be a folding bike to due limited space in the office. Also, I plan to bring it with me into the train if the weather goes bad. The distance between my home and office is around 10 km and there probably isn't many hills to climb along the way. Ho ...
