FIM Environmental Award

IN ORDER TO ENCOURAGE A GREATER AWARENESS OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS WITHIN THE MOTORCYCLING WORLD, THE FIM HAS CREATED AN ENVIRONMENTAL AWARD TO REWARD A SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTION TO THE PROTECTION OF THE ENVIRONMENT

This Award is given each year and it is granted for rewarding individuals, National Motorcycle Federations, Continental Unions, clubs, organisers, manufacturers or other organisations that have made a significant contribution or done something important to enhance environmental awareness in the field of motorcycling.

Candidatures for the Environmental Award are submitted to the FIM Administration by National Motorcycle Federations, Continental Unions, Specialised Associations or Board of Directors and are examined by an independent Jury.

The independent Jury is composed of one FIM Member of the Board, the FIM International Environment Commission Director and three independent experts chosen by the Board of Directors.

The Environmental Steward is the principal source of nominations for this important award. In the course of carrying out their responsibilities at FIM events, they should be vigilant in looking for examples of quality activities, innovative management of environmental challenges, and Federations or individuals doing an exemplary job. These nominations should be submitted, along with a description of the occurrence qualifying for the Award, to the FIM Administration with the event check-list.

“Understanding is growing among governments, businesses and individuals around the world of the important – but often overlooked – contribution of the environment to our well-being and economic security. The world of sport is no exception. The commitment of the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) to caring for the environment is exemplified by its Environmental Code, an essential tool for national affiliates and other organizers of FIM events. Through its initiative, FIM has demonstrated its determination to be part of the solution to environmental sustainability, and not part of the problem."
