We focus on how we power events in our host cities across all of our operations on site, including the tech base, media center, fan village, guest experiences and broadcasting operations.
This accounts for around 26% of our Scope 1 emissions, and differs based on the location, technology and fuel availability, and the local grid energy mix availability. By advocating for the use and showcasing of clean energy, not only will SailGP reduce its own carbon footprint, but it will accelerate energy transition innovation within power providers and bring these technologies to other global events. To that end, SailGP’s ambitious target is for all our events to be 100% powered by clean energy by 2025.
Our on-water footprint meanwhile covers all of our fleet activity on the water that enables our events to take place. This includes a range of boats used for coaching, safety, towing, race management, media, hospitality and technical support for the F50s. It does not include the F50s themselves as these are fully powered by nature. Our target is for our on-water fleet to be completely powered by clean energy by 2025. We are focusing on trialing new ways of operating on the water and integrating emerging clean energy technologies to reduce the carbon footprint of our existing fleet.
