Revealed today (May 17), EY will support Extreme E in its commitment to minimise its environmental impact and measure its carbon footprint across its events, logistics and operations.

The rally championship uses a hydrogen fuel cell generator, designed and engineered by AFC Energy, to remotely charge its race fleet using zero-emission energy, marking a revolutionary first in international motorsport.

Building on the success of its debut year in 2021, Extreme E Season 2 ‘ The Race For the Planet’ promises to captivate on and off track on a whole new level, whilst delivering on its overall purpose to tackle climate change through sport, starting with the Desert X Prix in NEOM, Saudi Arabia, 19-20 February.

As well as returning to Saudi Arabia, Italy and possibly Senegal, Extreme E will make its debut in South America with its final two X Prix of the campaign taking place in Antofagasta, Chile, and Punta del Este, Uruguay.

Ali Russell, Chief Marketing Officer for Extreme E, said, “I’m delighted to extend our collaboration with EY. An important member of the Extreme E family, EY adds credibility to our sport for purpose championship by providing key actionable insights which help us to assess and understand the impact of our series.

“Extreme E aims to continue delivering a championship that pushes the boundaries and challenges ways that traditional motorsports and sports events run, in addition to reducing the impact of our events, educating our audiences on their effects of climate change and to inspire them to take positive actions to protect our planet.”
