The FIA Foundation has an international reputation for innovative global road safety philanthropy; practical environmental research and interventions to improve air quality and tackle climate change; and high impact strategic advocacy in the areas of road traffic injury prevention and motor vehicle fuel efficiency. Our aim is to ensure ‘Safe, Clean, Fair and Green’ mobility for all, playing our part to ensure a sustainable future.
The Foundation first proposed the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020, devised and coordinates the Global Fuel Economy Initiative, and has provided the core grant for both the International Road Assessment Programme and the Global New Car Assessment Programme. Through funding partnerships with the World Health Organization, the UN Environment Programme, the World Bank Global Road Safety Facility and the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile we are supporting programmes, pilot initiatives and campaigns in more than 80 countries around the world.
The FIA Foundation is an independent UK registered charity which supports an international programme of activities promoting road safety, the environment and sustainable mobility, as well as funding motor sport safety research. The FIA Foundation for the Automobile & Society is a company limited by guarantee and registered as a charity in the UK (No. 1088670). The Foundation is independent and under the control of its Trustees who are required to act within the powers conferred upon them in our Articles of Association and in the best interests of the charity.

The FIA Foundation has an international membership of motoring and road safety organisations and national motorsport associations. We have 152 founding members and 14 members from 103 countries. The members of the FIA Foundation, through their Annual Meeting, elect our Board of Trustees and receive the Trustees' Annual Report and Financial Statements.
The Foundation works closely with its network of members to promote the objects of the charity, and has supported many national and regional road safety, environmental and motor sport safety activities implemented by member organisations. For example in 2007-8 the Foundation's members were the driving force behind a successful global petition, organised through our Make Roads Safe campaign, to secure the first ever Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety. We currently support road safety activities by many of our member clubs through a Global Road Safety Programme administered through a grant to the FIA. Some member activities are featured here.
