The springboard toward a green championship
Sant’Agata Bolognese/Misano, July 05, 2022 – On the occasion of the third round of the Super Trofeo Europe championship (1-3 July), Lamborghini Squadra Corse received ISO 20121 certification from TÜV Italia, which certifies that the organization of an event has been carried out according to the criteria of environmental, social, and economic sustainability.
In line with the ambitious sustainability targets announced with the Cor Tauri plan, Lamborghini Motorsport department implemented a detailed program for the Misano stage, based on energy-efficiency projects, the reduced use of paper and plastic, the use of local organic products for catering, and food recovery projects for charitable causes and to raise awareness and increase understanding about the issue among everyone involved in the race weekend.
Francesco Scarlata, Director of the Business Assurance Division at TÜV Italia, a certification body in the areas of environment, quality, energy and safety, presented the ISO 20121 certification to Maurizio Reggiani, Vice President Lamborghini Motorsport, who commented: “This milestone marks a springboard toward an entirely sustainable championship. The commitment we are putting into activities, projects and initiatives is comprehensive and across the board. Back in 2014, Automobili Lamborghini obtained certification from TÜV for the carbon fiber car repair service across the entire product range, later extended with ISO 9001 certification of Lamborghini Squadra Corse in 2016. Sustainability is an aspect now ingrained in the Company’s DNA, and Squadra Corse wants to continue to be an active player in this area.”
In addition to obtaining ISO 20121 certification, Lamborghini Squadra Corse uses Pirelli tyres that, after being used on the Super Trofeo Europa race tracks, are sent for material and energy recovery, in line with Lamborghini and Pirelli’s focus on the circular economy.
