Matt Edwards is to offer carbon offsetting as part of his driver tuition and testing packages through Carbon Positive Motorsport.
Matt Edwards is not only a record breaking triple British Rally Champion, but is also one of the most demanded and highly regarded professional driver coaches in the sport today.
He has regularly highlighted his view that for motorsport to thrive in the future, that all involved in the sport need to take a greater responsibility for their impact on the environment.
Matt was one of the first competitors in rallying to compete with all his competition-based carbon emissions offset through his associate sponsors, Carbon Positive Motorsport, in a partnership that formed during last year’s championship winning season and continues again for 2022.
In another first within the sport, all those who use his professional services will have the possibility through Matt, to have their driver tuition and testing carbon footprints offset through Carbon Positive Motorsport.
This exclusive package provides 25% more carbon to be offset than is created through these sessions. Drivers who take up this option with Matt will also receive a lifetime discount code to use in the future for their offsetting needs, and have the chance of winning a Carbon Positive Motorsport merchandise bundle each month. All the Carbon Positive Motorsport merchandise is made from 100% recycled materials and is a great way to showcase your committment to reducing the environmental impact of motorsport.
Speaking recently in an interview to Motorsport News, Matt said, “The sport must redress the negative association attached to using fossil fuels and sell rallying’s sustainability message if it’s to survive.’’
Carbon Positive Motorsport director, Paul Glass said ‘We are delighted to continue to work with Matt this year, and to extend our partnership through this initiative. Matt is a wonderful and professional ambassador, not only for us but the sport in general. His coaching is not only helping drivers be more competitive, but also to be more sustainable, and this is important to be more attractive for sponsors and help them to reach their competive ambitions.’
It only costs a little to make a big difference for the sport, so whether you're a competitor or spectator, why not join with us to help make motorsport sustainable.
