Green Means Go

Environmental Initiatives & Objectives

 

Overview

Roush Fenway Racing considers sustainability and environmental management to be consistent with its overall corporate goals and values.  Roush Fenway Racing recognizes that sustainable operations and effective environmental management can positively impact corporate profitability while protecting our employees and the environment.

We are committed to balancing environmental protection, social responsibility and economic progress without impacting on-track performance.  This commitment to sustainability and the triple bottom line (people, planet and profit) is reflected in our policies, programs and practices for conducting operations in an environmentally, as well as economically, responsible manner.

Our dedication to sustainable development can be seen at our corporate headquarters, within our race shops and at the track. We continue to work with our sponsor and vendor partners to develop ways we can become even more sustainable.
