Support safety and sustainability with FIA SDC

The FIA Smart Driving Challenge (SDC) is a worldwide challenge created by the FIA in collaboration with Greater Than to encourage everyday drivers to adopt smarter, cleaner and safer driving behaviors.

While driving, motorists get their driving assessed in real-time by Greater Than’s AI technology, that understands each trip’s level of risk and carbon footprint. Just by making motorists aware of their impact we can create a positive change.
