We are living in a time of planetary emergency. Global heating is altering weather systems, threatening habitats, and exacerbating social injustice. We must act now. At the FIA Foundation we work with leading global policy institutions to reduce the carbon impact of vehicles, designing ambitious policy instruments that aim for zero emissions, and supporting advocacy and research to shift from private car-based mobility to greener alternatives.


Coordinating the Global Fuel Economy Initiative since 2009, we have worked with leading global policy institutions to map, track and propose policies to improve fuel efficiency and accelerate electrification of the global car fleet.

With partners including the UN Environment Programme and World Resources Institute, we are investing in policy initiatives and demonstration projects to promote walking and cycling as a core mode for urban travel and an essential element of the Avoid, Shift, Improve approach.

Since the 2015 Paris Climate Summit we have assisted more than 100 countries with fuel economy and electrification strategies, and regulatory and legislative action, helping to deliver more sustainable procurement and taxation policies.
