A forward-looking race, detailed-oriented

Our planet. Our future.

We try to run our operations in the most sustainable way possible.

The Modena Cento Ore was the first “zero-emission” classic car race.

Since 2015 Modena Cento Ore has adopted a conscious approach to protect and sustain the environment with two concrete actions:

Scuderia Tricolore and Canossa Events stand up together for the environment, confirming their approach to organising zero-emission events.

The CarbonZero project has been created and developed by Studio Alfa, and it has been validated according to the international standard UNI EN ISO 14064. CarbonZero allows an immediate calculation of the event’s emissions on the basis of appropriate factors, and it also offers active solutions for responsible carbon management.

In the case of the Modena Cento Ore, the environmental impact of the event will be offset by planting enough trees to fully account for the amount of carbon dioxide produced. Careful selection of suppliers, hotel services and racing partners will contribute to further reducing the emissions.

“Our wonderful planet deserves to be protected with the same care we show our own classic cars"

explains Luigi Orlandini, the chairman and CEO of Canossa Events.

“The total amount of emissions produced by classic cars are completely irrelevant on a planetary scale when compared with those produced by transportation, energy production and livestock, but we want to do our part in helping the environment. This way, the crews will be able to leave their tyre marks on beautiful Italian roads without leaving any marks on our climate.”

Our engagement. Our community.

We have a long association with the Panathlon Club of Modena, sponsoring a project that gives disabled people access to sports.

We also fund a range of other projects, most of which are aimed at disadvantaged children.

As well as our ongoing projects, we are proud to step in when people are in need. Canossa was only in its infancy in 2012, but the company donated all its income to help rebuild some of the houses destroyed in the earthquake that rocked Emilia.

Then, during the Covid-19 pandemic, we were pleased to be able to help our local hospital acquire much-needed protective equipment.
