KiSS Mugello returns with action plan for Italian GP

A series of initiatives will help make the event a greener and more sustainable event

KiSS Mugello is the environmental and sustainability programme from the Italian Grand Prix, and it returns ahead of this weekend’s action. The aim of the initiative is to raise awareness on the importance of sustainability during major sporting events and everyday life, while it also reduces to impact of events at the world-famous circuit.

In the 2021 edition, Mugello Circuit ranked first in Sustainable Circuits Index. The study analysed 96 racing tracks across the globe and assessed their sustainability performance against the United Nation’s Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs), the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) framework and industry-specific environmental and social targets. You can view the full study HERE!

In 2015, Mugello Circuit was the first track to obtain the FIA Environmental Accreditation 3 Star recognition, the highest level of accreditation in the environmental sustainability programme launched by the FIA (Federation Internationale de l’Automobile). In addition to this, the circuit’s efforts have seen it achieve further awards and recognitions, such as the ISO 9001 for quality system management, ISO 45001 for health and safety management and ISO 20121 for sustainable event management.

Over the weekend, there will be a series of events and initiatives which will help Mugello Circuit strive to be as environmentally friendly and sustainable as possible.

Environmental Initiatives

As part of the circuit’s push for sustainability, there will be a separate waste collection and waste recycling area at the track. There will also be a recycling area inside the paddock, free drinking water for spectators with over 120 fountains within the circuit which will be fully compliant with the FIM environmental code.

Social Initiatives

A solidarity pit walk, dedicated to boys and girls with disabilities, will take place on Thursday, May 26th at 17:30 thanks to local non-profit organisations. This will allow them to visit the pitlane and boxes of the teams.

In an effort to reduce food waste and raise awareness, a collection of food surplus will happen across Saturday and Sunday at the Dorna VIP Village™ and the circuit’s hospitality areas. Teams will also join the initiative. This will be done in collaboration with Banco Almentare Toscana, a well-known local not for profit organisation. They will be out to improve the last effort, which saw 2,500 meals collected.

Other initiatives

The communication plan is in full synergy with the contents and aim of the FIM Ride Green programme. Press Releases will be delivered by Mugello Circuit, Right Hub and FIM. Riders will also produce quick and short messages on circular economy in a bid to inspire fans and spectators to be greener.
