Our focus areas include:

Fossil-free fuels

  • P1 Fuels is constantly pushing the usage of fossil-free fuels while decreasing the use of fossil-based components in fuel formulations. For example, we have already introduced some of our products with 100% fossil-free components while other products are swiftly moving towards fully fossil-free version of themselves.

Minimizing harmful emissions resulting from transportation, travel and overall business.

  • P1 Fuels encourages its employees to consider adopting the most sustainable means of transportation while on business travel to motorsport events, client meetings etc. These alternatives could include taking trains instead of flights, carpooling, walking in the city, taking public transportation, or biking where possible. Other initiatives include individual offsets of carbon emissions associated with personal travel itineraries. In addition, we use 100% green electricity at our premises in Berlin.

Responsible purchase of materials or retaining vendors that offer a lower environmental impact when presented with alternatives.

  • P1 Fuels actively seek reputable green certifications for raw materials needed for fuel production.
  • P1 Fuels actively encourages its suppliers to adopt sustainable practices in manufacturing and transportation of raw materials. Where P1 Fuels manages the logistics, we always employ fossil-free alternatives to fuel the transportation.

Disposing of solid and liquid waste in an environmentally responsible manner.

  • At P1 Fuels’ offices active waste sorting is practiced ensuring recycling and composting as alternatives to solid waste disposal to landfills.

Tracking and measuring environmental impacts associated with the event.

  • P1 Fuels is actively collaborating with leading universities and research centers to study environmental impact of motorsport events on lifecycle basis.

Eliminating the use of harmful chemicals.

  • P1 Fuels actively screens all the potential constituent compounds to be used in fuel formulation for toxicological and ecotoxicological data to ensure safe usage on universal basis.

2 // Communication to our Suppliers

Commitment to improve sustainability among P1 Fuels´ Business Partners

At P1 Fuels, our decisions are guided by sustainability, environmental protection, and social responsibility. As a company we constantly evaluate and promote sustainability internally as well as with our business partners. While engaging with our business partners we encourage them to conduct internal evaluations on following points promoting sustainability:

Reduction and efficient use of energy and its monitoring

Energy reduction efforts enable companies to simultaneously reduce costs and decrease greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. It also signals to customers and investors that you are working to reduce your impact on the environment, particularly around climate change. Opportunities exist to reduce both facility- and transportation-related emissions and carbon dioxide (CO2).

Steps to Consider

  • Have you measured your carbon footprint or taken steps to reduce your greenhouse gas emissions?
  • Have you set publicly available greenhouse gas reduction targets?
  • Have you considered “green” or alternative forms of energy?
  • Have you reported your greenhouse gas emissions to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP)?

Waste reduction and responsible disposal

By focusing on eliminating waste, you can save money by purchasing fewer raw materials and by transporting only what is needed. It will also have a positive impact on the environment because fewer natural resources will be consumed in the production of unnecessary waste (not to mention labor savings). Waste can either be hazardous or nonhazardous.

Steps to Consider

  • Do you have a recycling program in place?
  • Have you formally tracked waste weight?
  • Have you set publicly available waste reduction goals?
  • Have you reported your forest footprint to the Forest Footprint Disclosure Project?

Water usage reduction

Water is the most important substance on the planet, and it is scarce: less than 1% of all water on earth can be used by humans. Water is vital to human health and the environment, and virtually every industry from agriculture, electric power and industrial manufacturing to beverage, apparel, and tourism relies on it to grow and ultimately sustain their business. Efforts to reduce water use help save utility costs and offer another opportunity to improve your company’s impact on the environment.

Steps to Consider

  • Have you formally tracked water consumption?
  • Have you set publicly available water reduction goals?
  • Have you measured the total water use from facilities that produce your product(s)?

This Communication and attained goals will be regularly reviewed and updated.
