The organiser of the Formula One Singapore Grand Prix aims to halve the emissions produced from energy sources during the race weekend by 2028.

Singapore's The Straits Times reported recently that this is following a study of the carbon footprint of last year's race weekend which found that most of the emissions generated – 96.1 per cent – came from providing the energy required to power the event.

The study also found that the total amount of carbon dioxide emitted over a five-month period, from the time work started to set up the circuit in July and, after the race, to tear down all the infrastructure in November, was 2,372 tonnes.

The organisers aims to do so via several initiatives, including the use of LED lighting across the 4.94km Marina Bay Street Circuit and to install 1,396 solar panels on the roof of the F1 Pit Building.

This year's race in the island nation will be held on 17 September.
