MOTOR SPORT SUSTAINABILITY SEMINAR
Gus Glover, FIA Institute Head of Sustainability
The Environmentally Sustainable Motor Sport Commission was tasked with developing FIA Policy on Environmentally Sustainable issues. Initially within the Commission and in consultation with US counterparts, the Commission developed a policy framework which was presented to a plenary of ASN and FIA Commission Presidents for feedback in June 2009. The amended paper became official FIA Policy when it was formerly adopted by the October WMSC.
FIA Institute Environmental Policy
The FIA Institute is committed to adopting the FIA’s policies and in line with its role as a non regulatory body, it will focus its attention on project work and activities which will help implement the policies into motor sport.
Develop a business plan
The Institute is looking to a hire a Sustainability Programme Coordinator to take forward Programme, set its goals and objectives, and monitor the implementation of various projects.
Further the work of the ESMSC Working Groups
The ESMSC formed three working groups to supports its work. The first the Power Train Working Group has completed the review of the potential of power trains to contribute to improved environmental performance, and specific research into hybrids. The other two groups, the Noise Working Group and Facilities Working Group, still have outstanding work. The Institute will continue to develop the work of both these groups.
ASN Funding opportunities
The FIA Institute is working in conjunction with the FIA Foundation and FIA to amend the criteria for funding from the Motor Sport Development Fund to allow funding for specific sustainability projects.
Environmental management of motor sport facilities plays an important role in reducing the impact of motor sport.
Building standards are required to ensure that the correct environmental steps are taken not just during the construction, but the entire life cycle of the facility.
The Facilities Working Group will define best practice in the field of environmental management, looking towards established global best practice frameworks for motor sport based on existing standards such as EMAS. On the built environment, the Institute intends to work with BRE to create a BREEAM standard and assessment tools for facilities.
Carbon offsetting is not a solution to climate change, and should not be treated as such. Some carbon emissions are avoidable, offsetting should be reserved for those emissions which are not. Emissions assessments must be conducted at the highest possible standard.
Motor Sport specific Carbon Offsetting
In a typical event actors will include: promoters, teams, circuits, the regulator, and spectators. A key component relating to offsetting is the polluter pays principle, each actor is accountable for their own emissions.
The FIA Institute will develop a carbon offset project identifying best practice and developing a motor sport framework for offsetting allowing ASN and stakeholders to align themselves and be certified against the framework.
