The environmental strategy of Rally Estonia is the principles of our environmental activities and the long-term goals and development directions, purposes and organizations involved in achieving the goals. The environmental strategy is defined as the development of the Rally Estonia's environmental policy.
FIA has assumed responsibility for reducing the climate change footprint and, in collaboration with the members at competition events, supports their efforts to reduce sustainable development and the carbon footprint.
The slogan that reflects our goals and strategies is ''Flat out to a green future!''
By 2050 Estonia aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the transport sector by 60 percent compared to 1990 levels. The specific sub-objective is to reduce the share of cars running on conventional fuels by half by 2030 and eliminate these completely by 2050.
FIA has set a strategic goal in 2021 to draw up plans to reduce carbon emissions by 20% in 2025 and 50% in 2030. In 2021 emission offsets will be started in the selected projects through compensation; In 2027 investments in carbon capture technology and possible synergies with sustainable fuels by 2030 will be started to achieve zero carbon status.
2. Waste reduction
RRR (reduce, reuse, recycle) principle
In order to decrease waste disposal, it is important to significantly reduce waste generation by developing waste sorting, recovery and recycling. It is also important to reduce the hazardousness of waste and the content of hazardous substances in waste.
3. Sustainable use of natural resources (protection of groundwater and surface water), conservation of landscapes and biodiversity
The aim is to monitor the amount of water and effluent used, reduce use where possible and treat effluent properly. Compliance with standards for protected areas and protected species.
4. Participation in sustainable development processes
RE considers the participation in the sustainability debate with researchers, other organizations and the general public important, by joining therefore the Green Tiger as a founding member.
