Supported by educators and Waste4Change waste management officers who are ready to oversee the event.

A total of 20.5 tons of waste were collected in the 2 days of the event, a decrease compared to the previous year. All waste has also been managed optimally according to its type. Thanks to the implementation of Zero Waste to Landfill, as much as 8,577 kg of CO2 carbon emissions were reduced from waste management throughout the series of events.

Senior Manager of Sustainability from FIA Formula E London, Iona Neilson, stated that since 2014, Formula E has become the first race in the world with a zero-emission principle. But it’s not just the racing cars that use electricity, there are aspects that are considered to reduce carbon emissions, including the option to use land routes for event logistics, encouragement for visitors to use public transportation, and an invitation to reduce single-use bottles and packaging for the sake of reducing waste.

Supporting the circular economy concept, the 2023 GulaVit Jakarta E-Prix not only tries to reduce waste generation but also ensures that waste that cannot be avoided is recycled optimally and does not end up in landfills (Zero-Waste to Landfill). Waste4Change as a provider of holistic waste management solutions has been trusted to manage JIEC waste in 2022 and is again trusted to be involved in 2023.

The previous Jakarta E-Prix 2022 waste management by Waste4Change involved 66 educators and volunteers for waste education, ensured that 21.9 tons of waste during the event were managed so that it did not end up in the landfill, and managed to help reduce the equivalent of 11,113 kg of CO2 carbon emissions from waste management throughout the series of events.

In order to achieve the goal of reducing the 2023 GulaVit Jakarta E-Prix carbon emissions, Waste4Change together with FIA Formula E London and Jakpro ensure that there are proper facilities and education related to waste management throughout the series of events.

The invitation to reduce carbon emissions and waste did not only take place at the peak of the event on 3-4 June 2023 but also through visits to schools and beach cleanups in the pre-event phase. Nearly 220 educators and waste management officers from Waste4Change are ready to assist the education process regarding waste sorting for visitors, cleaners, committee members, and all event supporters. A total of 140 trash bins are provided at the area event to support sorting into 3 types, namely organic, inorganic, and residual waste.

“We are very proud to be part of the 2023 GulaVit Jakarta E-Prix again which consistently carries the theme of zero emission and zero waste to landfill. We hope that Waste4Change’s re-engagement as an educator and waste management at the 2023 GulaVit Jakarta E-Prix can have a positive impact on the environment as well as an even bigger social impact than the previous year. Hopefully, the collaboration between FIA Formula E London, Jakpro, Waste4Change, event supporters, and all visitors to reduce waste that ends up in landfills and carbon emissions can be an inspiration for other event organizers to take the same steps,” said Stephanus Kenny Bara Kristanto, Head of Communication & Engagement Waste4Change.
