Over the past few years, motorsport has been challenged as a sport around our sustainability credentials. This has been most prominent in the Rally community, specifically around forest rallying. Motorsport UK have spend considerable time working with the forestry bodies across the UK to showcase our efforts in this space and prove a genuine and authentic effort to meet Net Zero goals. 

It is important to recognise that many Clubs are already making great progress with their own sustainability activities – and for that we thank you – however Forestry Stakeholders for Rallying (which for our region is Forestry and Land Scotland) require us to demonstrate how the sport as a whole is going to play its part in moving towards a more sustainable existence.

The Rally community has come together to design and agree a charter and commitments to acknowledge its role in creating a more sustainable future. By adopting the charter, Clubs, organisers and competitors are agreeing to action on demonstrating more sustainable behaviours in order to sustain our sport.

We would encourage all Members Clubs and event organisers to adopt the Charter and its commitments and agree to action on demonstrating more sustainable behaviours in order to sustain our sport.
