RED BULL RACING IS GOING GREENER

Red Bull Racing is to work closely with Siemens plc to reduce the team's carbon footprint, energy use and waste. In an exclusive, multi-year agreement Siemens now becomes the Formula One team's partner for efficient technology.

Christian Horner, Team Principal, said: "Energy Saving is currently an important topic in F1. Teams have demonstrated their commitment to reducing carbon emissions with the recent announcement of FOTA's carbon calculation and reduction programme. Our new agreement with Siemens plc demonstrates our desire to reduce Red Bull Racing's factory emissions and significantly cut our company's carbon footprint - we're pleased to be able to do this with a company such as Siemens plc."

The team is looking to decrease its energy usage by improving its building equipment, systems and processes. Siemens will carry out audits on manufacturing equipment and processes, building management, heating, lighting and air conditioning systems at the Milton Keynes Factory, then provide technology and solutions to help energy savings and financial performance.

Red Bull Racing already has close ties to Siemens Product Life Cycle Management (PLM) which provides software for the team's designers and engineers to virtually model and manage every part of the car.

Juergen Maier, head of industry for Siemens plc, said: "We are delighted to extend our work with Red Bull Racing. Using our expertise in energy efficient products and solutions we hope to help Red Bull Racing set the pace in greener manufacturing in the Formula 1 industry. With Siemens PLM software helping the Red Bull Racing car to be as efficient as possible on the track, the new partnership will now also enable greener, efficient operations to be number one off the track!"
