The FIA demonstrated its commitment to transparency and accountability by publishing its 2023 FIA Environmental Report recently.
The second edition of the report looks at the 2022 results and the progress made towards the objectives set for the next target date of 2025 in the FIA Environmental Strategy 2020-2030.
FIA implemented several measures. In 2022, the average footprint per employee decreased by 16% compared with the baseline year of 2019, as a result of the new adoption which included new business travel policy, and the reduction of energy consumption, among others.
To consolidate that result, an extended homeworking policy allowing to reduce the footprint of staff commuting has been implemented in 2023.
For the record, FIA obtained the ISO 14001:2015 standard certification and achieved carbon neutrality in 2021 and 2022.
The offsetting of emissions is one step on the FIA’s pathway to net zero, defined in its Environmental Strategy. The FIA’s target is to halve its GHG emissions by 2030 and become net zero by removing any residual emissions.
In 2022, the FIA received the IOC Carbon Action Award for its carbon reduction plan.
Overall Greenhouse Gas emissions of the FIA in 2022 were nearly at their 2019 level with a 0.7% increase explained by a 20% increase in staff number compared with the last three years and a rise of activities. As in previous years, most of the footprint comes from business travel (73.5%) and logistics (23.7%) and the FIA is conscious of the challenges ahead as both are inherent to the nature of its activity.
