For its ninth season, the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship launches South Africa’s first all-electric street circuit race which will be held in the Greenpoint and Waterfront precinct.
As Official Champagne Supplier, Moët & Chandon will be part of this historic race, from the winner’s podium to hospitality areas including VIP lounges.
The driving force behind the partnership: environmental excellence
Moët & Chandon and Formula E are proud to enter a fifth year of stable partnership; what continues to evolve is their commitment to protecting nature. As brands, both are dedicated to passing on the very best to future generations through sustainability, technology and innovation. Formula E aligns strongly with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, something Moët & Chandon are proud to mirror through this commitment.
Moët & Chandon: ‘Natura Nostra’, a program for preserving our natural heritage
Inspired by its legacy and pioneer spirit, Moët & Chandon leads the way to a responsible and exciting future by protecting nature, preserving the biodiversity, and reducing its own environmental footprint. The Maison’s long-term commitments come together in ‘Natura Nostra’, Moët & Chandon’s program to preserve its natural heritage and accelerate the ecological transition towards greater biodiversity in Champagne. Natura Nostra’s mission is to establish an ecological balance by rethinking human interventions, creating natural homes for fauna, diversifying monocultured landscapes and more.
Formula E: racing for a cleaner future, faster
Formula E emphasizes environmental excellence in the four pillars of its sustainability strategy. The electric street racing series is the first sport to be certified net zero carbon since inception and is dedicated to maintaining net zero carbon status. Last year, Formula E became the first sport in the world to join the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and the Business Ambition Pledge for 1.5°C commitment. Formula E will further reduce its emissions by 45% by 2030 and is also taking action to ensure all events are powered by 100% renewable energy to further reduce its footprint.
Berta de Pablos-Barbier, President & CEO of Maison Moët & Chandon said, “Our Maison is proud to continue in partnership with Formula E, a brand as committed as we are to an important balance: creating excellence today while building a responsible legacy for tomorrow. For more than 20 years, Moët & Chandon has been transforming our sustainable development approach while preserving our historical heritage and modernizing our practices while protecting nature. As we kick off our fifth year of partnership with Formula E, we continue to accelerate those actions through our biodiversity program Natura Nostra designed to answer the challenges of climate change.
Jamie Reigle, Chief Executive Officer of Formula E said, “Moët & Chandon embodies excellence and prestige. We’re thrilled our guests will continue to enjoy a taste of luxury as part of their Formula E experience in cities around the world. Moët & Chandon’s passion for developing ecological awareness will serve as a common platform for our brands as we underscore the importance of sustainable legacies.”
