The FEDERATION INTERNATIONALE DE L’AUTOMOBILE (FIA) is the governing body of world motorsport and the federation of the world's largest motor organizations. Founded in 1904, with headquarters in Paris, the FIA is a non-profit making association. Through the expertise gained in that arena, the FIA has since grown into a global organization that not only promotes motor sport, but also safe, sustainable and accessible mobility for all road users across the world. As such, the federation works across three key interlinked areas of activity – Sport, Campaigns and Mobility. In the realm of Mobility, the FIA aims to ensure that safe, affordable and clean systems of transport are available to all. The promotion of safe and sustainable forms of mobility has in turn led the FIA to commit to global sustainability initiatives and also to found its own major response to road safety concerns, FIA Action for Road Safety.
