Formula E, an electric single-seater competition organized by the International Automobile Federation and designed as a research and development laboratory for electric vehicles, will take place today at Mexico City’s Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez.
According to Julia Pallé, the Sustainability Director of ABB FIA Formula E, the championship was created in 2012 with a focus on electrification at the automobile level, with the intention of seeking solutions focused on sustainability at the time. “That was the challenge ten years ago; the world needed Formula E to demonstrate that we have technologies to provide solutions to combat climate change while also providing an exciting and thrilling lifestyle. Sustainability does not imply making a sacrifice in order to have a positive impact on the environment “..
According to Vicente Magaa, Country Managing Director of ABB Mexico, “The return of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship to Mexico provides an ideal opportunity to showcase sustainable technology and raise awareness of the numerous ways we can help combat climate change. With a number of high-profile projects, ABB has become a strategic partner for Mexico, providing technology to help Mexico achieve breakthroughs in energy management and efficiency across the country’s industries.”
Magaa insisted that the championship was created to address sustainability issues and to create more efficient companies and more equal societies by showcasing technology-focused education for both men and women. “The championship demonstrates the potential of electric mobility and reflects ABB’s commitment to making the world work without depleting its resources.”
ABB’s Director of Communication and Sustainability, Theodor Swedjemark, stated that “As part of our Sustainability Strategy 2030, the company is constantly driving progress in countries such as Mexico to help create a more sustainable future. Social progress is an important component of this strategy, as we strive to create safe, fair, and inclusive work environments while also supporting community development.”
According to Vicente Magaa, the private sector has a global agenda of zero net emissions, circularity, and integrating vehicles into the process. “Our company is committed to ABB’s global Sustainability Goals for 2030, and it has established a strategy to reduce CO2 emissions in its Mexican operations. Part of this reduction will be accomplished through the use of renewable energy in three of ABB’s nine facilities in the country, which will save 2 kt (kiloton) of CO2.”
He stated that ABB is involved in research, manufacturing, automation, and electrification for the industrial, energy, and infrastructure sectors, with a focus on creating a sustainable and electrified future. “Let’s see electrification, automation, and electrical systems become more common, whether it’s in electrification of mass transportation or cable cars that have been realized in 70% less time and even in the implementation of electrolineras.”
