1st Motorsports Environmental Barometer

Fédération Française du Sport Automobile (FFSA) and Fédération Française de Motocyclisme (FFM) are intensifying their cooperation to develop a development strategy that meets the goal of carbon neutrality by 2050. and Sébastien Poirier, the two federations launched motorsport’s first environmental barometer for this purpose, complemented by economic and social impact studies in an extension of the first act carried out in 2019. rice field. With the company EY (Ernst & Young) leading the sector with key players (clubs, circuits, teams, licensees), the study aims to assess its economic significance and estimate its environmental impact.

FFSA and FFM are actively participating in the same process, as is the EU pledging to become carbon neutral by 2050. It was only natural that the two organizations, motivated not only by common values ​​but also by the same issues, would share their skills. Ecological transitions are an existential subject for motorsport practitioners and actors today.

The motorsport sector’s first environmental barometer will therefore have significant repercussions. In addition to precisely defining the carbon impacts of these activities, we identified all existing avenues for moving towards a truly ecological transition for motorsport, and determined that FFSA and FFM would achieve carbon-neutral goals. You need to decide on a roadmap that allows you to make a practical commitment towards Since its birth, motorsport has always been a veritable laboratory of technological innovation, bringing great strides to our everyday mobility. They can therefore become major players in the environmental revolution. This barometer ultimately drives ambitious policies shared by all players in the sector. A study that started a few weeks ago has already been successful. The survey, sent to industry insiders and motorsport personalities, shows a high response rate. Sufficient to secure the will and determination of enthusiastic communities to mobilize for civic causes when necessary.

The results of this study will be presented in Paris in March 2023.

Nicolas Deschaux – President of the French Motorsport Federation:

We are pleased to strengthen the collaboration between our federation and the Fédération Française de Motocyclisme (FFM). To those players who are already committed to reducing motorsport’s environmental footprint, thank you for contributing to the creation of this first barometer for our sector. In light of our 2050 carbon neutral goal, this is our way forward. »

Sébastien Poirier – President of the French Motorcycle Federation:

This first environmental barometer is decisive for the motorsport sector. It engages us in a responsible and practical way to reach our carbon neutral goals by 2050. In the image of the economic impact studies conducted, it was natural for us to pool our skills to tackle this existential challenge of the two federations. This made it possible to establish a position, especially against public institutions. »
