We are committed to addressing environmental and climate issues, both for our organisation and in helping our Members and stakeholders achieve their commitments. How the FIA is acting on its own impact.

It outlines our carbon footprint in 2022 and its evolution since 2019, as well as actions we undertake to reduce and offset our emissions and perspective for net zero.

Carbon Management

The FIA has been calculating its carbon footprint since 2019. It is independently verified by Global Climate Initiatives; and the accounting and reporting procedure has been established in line with the GHG Protocol. The calculation includes all three scopes of the GHG protocol and covers the three FIA sites, the events organised by the FIA and the championship suppliers’ activities financed by the FIA. Within the categories of emissions defined according to the ISO 14064-1, Scopes 1 and 2 are globally mandatory, Scope 3 items calculated for the FIA are the following: energy-related emissions Scope 3, purchased goods and services, capital goods, waste, upstream transportation and distribution, business travels, and employee commuting. The figures related to the carbon footprint are based on current available data. We are continually seeking to improve data collection and adjust our targets accordingly.

FIA administration carbon footprint in 2022 and evolution since 2019

As expected, in 2022, the organisation experienced a rise in activities as well as an increase in staff number compared with the last three years.

The overall GHG emissions of the organisation in 2022 were nearly at their 2019 level (0.7% increase).

However, the average footprint per employee decreased by 16% compared with the baseline year (2019), with a 20% increase in staff number. To consolidate that result, an extended homeworking policy allowing to reduce the footprint of staff commutings has been implemented in 2023.

Breakdown by Main Emission Sources in 2022


13 999 t CO2e
FIA Business Travels

Includes FIA Staff travel to events and championships (travel and accommodation).


522.3 t CO2e
Other Activities

Includes electricity, energy, purchased goods, capital goods, waste and employee commuting. 


4 516.1 t CO2e
FIA Freight Transports

Includes freight to championships (ground and air freight) and events (ground and sea freight).

As in previous years, most of our footprint comes from business travels (73.5% in 2022, 71% in 2021) and logistics (23.7% in 2022, 22% in 2021); other activities (2.7%) included electricity consumption, purchased goods, waste and employee commuting.
