Not that you have to look very hard - the Institute's website is fairly comprehensive - but they don't seem to do much to promote their initiatives.
The latest sees the FIA Institute launching an Environmental Certification programme which will support ASNs (National Sporting Authorities) around the world in their efforts to go green. Or, as the FIA put it, a 'programme that will enable National Sporting Authorities (ASNs), teams, circuits and promoters in motor sport to achieve the highest levels of environmental performance.'
The programme hinges on an environmental accreditation system that has been specifically tailored for the world of motorsport. There are three levels of certification, giving teams, circuits, and the like, the impetus to ensure that improvements are an on-going process.
To help the organisations meet their environmental goals, the Institute is making grants of up to €50,000 available in the next funding round of the Motor Sport Safety Development Fund, due to take place in September.
"This represents a major step towards achieving the goal of our Sustainability Programme, which aims to establish the highest standards of environmental management in motor sport across the world," said FIA Institute president Gérard Saillant. "We are now looking forward to helping all stakeholders in motor sport to achieve this goal."
