The FIA is a leading campaigner on a wide range of motoring-related issues including global road safety and environmental sustainability.
In recent years the FIA has emerged as a tireless campaigner across a range of issues that affect its constituent elements.
Chief among the FIA’s campaign work is its commitment to reducing road deaths globally and in 2011 the Federation launched FIA Action for Road Safetyto combat road deaths and fatalities around the world.
Launched in support of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020, FIA Action for Road Safety aims to help save the live of five million people on the world’s roads by the end of the decade.
Since its launch the campaign has been embraced by governments, stakeholder organisations and member clubs across the globe. It has also been endorsed by some of the world’s biggest sporting names.
In the field of sustainable motoring, the FIA continues to press for a green future for the motoring world. Initially working through its Make Cars Green initiative, the FIA continues to seek out and promote environmentally sound and sustainable solutions for all our transport needs.
The FIA is active across a number of other key campaigns including the prevention of drug use in motor sport and also in attempting to make sport an equal opportunities endeavour.
In 2010, the FIA established an initiative designed to encourage more women to get involved in racing. The Women in Motorsport Commission aims to put in place strategies that promote education and training and to put into practice actions that will strengthen the participation of women in all areas of motor sport.
The FIA is also keenly aware of the perils of drug use in sport and in 2010 became a signatory to the World Anti-Doping Code.
The FIA has also launched an initiative called Race True aimed at educating competitors about their responsibilities in regard to the avoidance of banned substances.
