Gulf Race Fuels has launched a new partnership with UK-based environmental organisation, Ecologi that will see the motorsport brand positively contribute to reducing CO2 for every litre of fuel it sells by purchasing Gold Standard certified carbon offsets. The initiative sees Gulf look to lead the way for performance fuel companies, by kickstarting action towards sustainability and carbon offsetting.
Gulf Race Fuels and Ecologi have identified a formula for the numbers of Gold Standard-certified carbon credits required to offset each litre of fuel sold. In addition to this, Gulf will also fund tree-planting projects with Ecologi in Madagascar, Mozambique and Nicaragua – helping to future-proof and build the CO2 absorption capacity of our planet. The Gold Standard carbon offset and tree planting investments will allow Gulf to more than compensate for the impact of the fuel sold and used.
“We understand the need to protect the environment and we don’t see ourselves as just a high-performance motorsport fuel supplier. We also want to achieve success off of the track and this initiative with Ecologi allows us to do that,” Says Mark Ticen, Director, Gulf Race Fuels.
We’re conscious of the ongoing pressures – both environmental and legislative – to reduce carbon footprints. Offsetting our sales by purchasing carbon credits allows us to be part of a global solution.
Gulf Race Fuels is tracking its progress through its live forest page; Ecologi.com/GulfRaceFuels. Here, all of Gulf’s partners are able to check the progress the company is making in reducing CO2 levels. The motorsport fuel company is also developing a sustainability page so it can comprehensively track its environmental impact.
“We’ve already offset over 300,000 CO2 emissions worldwide, and planted more than 8 million trees. Working with forward thinking companies like Gulf Race Fuels allows us to continue our mission to remove 50% of global CO2 emission by 2040” says Dennis Hettema, Head of Sales at Ecologi. In fact, there are enough environmental solutions available that if all fully supported, 30 years of carbon damage could be undone, avoiding 1,500 billion tons of CO2.” For more information on the partnership and how Gulf Race Fuels is positively contributing to climate change, visit; Ecologi.com/GulfRaceFuels.
