Nico Rosberg is the 2016 Formula 1 World Champion and since retiring, has turned his attention to pastures new, specifically, green technologies and sustainable mobility. He uses his following and reach to help gain publicity for his business ventures and raise awareness of sustainability through technological innovation to benefit mankind for generations to come. Nico is also the founder and CEO of Rosberg Xtreme Racing and takes part in Extreme E – a category of racing taking place in extreme environments to raise awareness of climate change using electric SUVs. Combining his passion of racing and the environment, Nico is now a sought-after speaker for corporate and industry events.

An extraordinarily intelligent man, Nico turned down a place to study aeronautical engineering at Imperial College London to pursue his dreams of becoming a Formula 1 World Champion, and scored the highest ever marks recorded for the Williams Formula 1 Racing Team’s aptitude test. Soon after, he signed with the team to race in the 2006 Formula 1 season. Nico is still involved in Formula 1; as well as being a pundit, he closely monitors the steps the organisation takes towards a more sustainable future and is a shareholder and investor in Formula E.

Having only joined the sustainability scene after his retirement from Formula 1 in 2016, Nico has been making waves since his arrival and founded the Greentech Festival – a global platform for innovative and pioneering green technologies. At its premier, it attracted an astonishing 40,000 visitors – a true testament to the work Nico has been doing. A true sustainability entrepreneur, it comes as no surprise that in 2018 Nico was awarded GreenTec Entrepreneur of the Year, and in 2021 he was awarded the European Culture Award for the Environment. A sustainability investor, Nico has also supported numerous start-ups such as: Lilium, Volocopter, What3Words, Tier and Chargepoint, and has worked with: Deutsche Bahn, Kempinski Hotels, Sunreef Yachts and Bianchi, to kickstart the movement towards a more sustainable future.

Nico is the co-owner of TRE GmbH, a German vehicle technology company, and in 2019, partnering up with Schaeffler, they developed an intelligent chassis for the electric Schaeffler Mover Shuttle which was awarded the German Mobility Award. Now well-known within the sustainability sphere, since 2016, Nico has regularly spoken at the World Economic Forum in Davos, where he has had the opportunity to share his perspectives and innovative ideas on sustainability, mobility and social justice.
