What is World Earth Day?

Every year on the 22nd of April, the world celebrates Earth Day. A day with the goals of education, community, awareness, and action.

  1. Education: Earth Day aims to educate people on how they can better help their planet; from school learning to midnight googling – the resources and learning opportunities out there are endless and all aim to give you the tools you need to start making positive change.
  2. Community: It takes a village to raise a child, and it will take everyone collectively to save the planet. Earth Day promotes the coming together of a community to take on projects both big and small. Whether you plant a tree with your family or travel the seas to keep them clean. We must all come together as one to heal the planet.
  3. Awareness: Earth Day brings awareness to global issues such as climate change, forest fires, extinctions, non-renewable resource usage and more.  
  4. Action: Earth Day inspires people to take the steps that need to be taken, and not accept that the world cannot be saved. There is no planet B, so take action today.


TeamSport are no strangers to understanding the impact large companies can have on the environment, especially in the Motorsport world.

This is why we are extremely proud to say that we are a carbon-neutral company, with the goal to be net zero by 2030.

Our electrification pipeline (converting petrol kart fleets to electric ones) is accelerating nicely, with currently, 60% (24) of our sites, including Docklands and Gosport, having been electrified.

By the end of 2024, we are planning to be 68% electric (which is 27 sites), with plans to convert another 7 sites in 2025, and 6 sites in 2026. To achieve our target of 100% electrified by the end of 2026.

Teamsport’s dedication to the environment doesn’t end with our electrification project, as in order to call ourselves carbon neutral we have taken part in some awesome programs, from planting over 1,000 trees to abolishing single use plastic and increasing the % of our waste that is recycled. To read about these and all the other great initatives TeamSport take part in, check out our environmental governance page.

Whilst TeamSport have implemented and are planning a lot to reduce its impact on the planet, it is not just the environment that TeamSport invests in. Take a look at the website to read about how TeamSport contributes to their local communities. Be that the work they do supporting the charity Mission Motorsport to supporting children excluded from mainstream schooling (Fast Forward) to teaching inmates valuable life skills to assist them in finding future employment.

Key takeaways:

  • Earth Day is for everyone to start making positive steps towards protecting our planet.
  • TeamSport are carbon neutral, with aims to be netzero by 2030.
  • TeamSport’s electrification project is on track to achieve 100% electrification of all tracks by the end of 2026.
