Zak Brown, CEO of McLaren Racing, came to the McLaren Technology Center and announced its NEOM sustainability partnership.
Taking on sustainability has been one of the many challenges adopted by motorsports. From the sustainable development of Formula 1 vehicles, McLaren Racing has unveiled the latest livery for the Extreme E car and its Formula E vehicle, marking the team's first entry into the sustainable racing series.
Additionally, The McLaren Technology Center hosts guests from the Saudi Arabian smart city NEOM, and they've announced a partnership that will drive a sustainable future in motorsport, as well as urban living.
Vishal Wanchoo, CEO of Oxagon, and Mark Mathieson, Lead Partner in the McLaren Accelerator acknowledged the significance of how both organizations will coincide to develop as partners, and Mathieson stressed that their work would be an act of cohesion, not as a service to one or the other.
"The McLaren Accelerator program is the partnership's effort to drive circularity and innovation in motorsport technology to be relayed into plans for NEOM's Oxagon project. Through the partnership, the organizations will pioneer solutions to advance clean industry technology, drive innovation, build integrated supply chain solutions, develop a next-generation port, and help communities to thrive in the process." - Mark Mathieson, Lead Partner in the McLaren Accelerator.
