The multi-year partnership with Ecolab will support the development of a Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) programme to accelerate McLaren’s overall strategy of decarbonizing its Formula 1 logistics and operations. The organizations will collaborate to incorporate SAF into delivering McLaren’s net zero commitment of halving emissions by 2030 and reaching net zero by 2040.

Zak Brown, CEO of McLaren Racing, said:
We are delighted to welcome Ecolab to the McLaren Racing family, and this is a partnership built on shared goals. The early adoption of Sustainable Aviation Fuel is a significant step forward in our efforts to take positive climate action, and this collaboration will enable us to explore credible options to reduce the emissions from our race logistics. It also signals to the aviation industry that there is demand for them to accelerate their decarbonization plans and increase the supply of SAF.
