CNBC's Charmaine Jacob is report ting that Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix is pledging to reduce energy emissions by half in 2028. 

The organizers of the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix have announced their commitment to halve energy emissions from the event by 2028.

Last year's event was responsible for 2,372 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions, primarily from energy usage. To achieve this goal, they plan to phase out diesel and use hydrotreated vegetable oil in generators, aiming for full implementation by 2028, which could reduce carbon emissions by up to 52%.

This initiative aligns with Formula 1's 2019 net-zero targets for 2030, focusing on sustainability measures, including eliminating single-use plastics, waste recycling, and using renewable energy sources like solar panels and LED lights.
