FIA SDC evaluates CO2 emissions per trip. Driving smart means using less energy, and less energy means lower CO2 emissions. Making motorists aware of the impact drives enormous positive change.

Scores to improve your driving – and the planet

The scoring system in FIA SDC is based on how safe & eco-friendly your driving is. Factors such as energy efficiency, pace, eco-driving, safety and the handling of the gas and brake are taken into account. It is independent of your car brand and model as well as your geographical position. This means that there are no preexisting disadvantages in the competition, even if you drive an older car.

Challenge yourself – and your friends

Achieve your driving goals through customised coaching and actionable tips based on your driving performance. FIA SDC makes it easy to monitor your progress and track your activity right from your phone.
