As part of its strategy towards raising global awareness of environmental management issues across motor sport, the FIA Institute launched the Sustainability Programme in 2012 and published a set of Best Practice Principles for applicants to implement. The Programme provides guidance to various motor sport stakeholders regarding their adoption of environmental initiatives and allows accreditation to be awarded at three levels: Commitment to Excellence, Progress towards Excellence and Achievement of Excellence.
The Race Track Business Conference 2015 will be held on Wednesday December 9 at the Performance Racing Industry Show in Indianapolis, Indiana, United States.
Following an audit by the FIA Institute, the Norges Bilsportforbund (NBF) was found to have excellent sustainability policies and initiatives in place, helping it to attain the highest award level – Achievement of Excellence.
The MSA was awarded Achievement of Excellence having implemented a number of measures since it gained the second level of FIA environmental excellence accreditation earlier this year.
One of the major developments has been the implementation of a new Environmental Management System (EMS) manual, with input from a number of environmental experts. The EMS, developed by the MSA based on FIA Institute principles, is designed to identify future environmental risks, improve energy efficiency and promote environmental awareness.
