We go racing with purpose. The eSC exists to provide micromobility solutions to a society searching for a smarter, cleaner tomorrow
Micromobility is transforming the way we move through cities.
The Electric Skootr Championship™ (eSC) wants to further the reach and potential of this new mobility movement through our new emobility sport.
Creating an advocacy platform has always been an essential part of the vision for eSC. Our racing with purpose mission not only focuses on smarter, safer, more sustainable and more inclusive mobility choices, but also the global policy steps needed to ensure these choices become achievable.
A science-based commitment to safety is a fundamental requirement for any racing series, and motorsport has long been recognised as a potential incubator and accelerator for socially relevant technology innovation and transfer.
The eSC aims to apply the best safety and sustainability innovations from the racetrack to the everyday user’s micromobility experience, in turn encouraging more liveable cities across the world.
Starting a meaningful and effective conversation
Our conversation has already begun with key global stakeholders from the public, private and civil society sectors on how we can best achieve results, and we’ll have some exciting announcements to share with you in the coming weeks as we count down to our first race in 2021.
A shared focus with the UN’s Global Goals
The eSC strongly supports the integrated objectives of the United Nations’ 17 Global Goals For Sustainable Development. We recognise the public health connections between road safety, accessibility, equality, sustainability, the environment and climate change.

Our racing with purpose mission particularly focuses on:
The eSC has identified Safety, Sustainability and Accessibility as the initial priorities for our policy and advocacy activities.
We support the recommendations of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s International Transport Forum report on Safe Micromobility. This was launched in February 2020 during the third Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety, hosted by the Swedish government in Stockholm.
The eSC supports the wider road safety policy objectives of the Stockholm Declaration – the outcome document adopted at the Third Global Ministerial Conference, in particular the target to cut road fatalities and serious injuries by 50 per cent by 2030 in the context of a safe-system approach.
eSC Founder and Ambassador Alex Wurz will be our advocacy lead on road safety. Alex has been a leading motorsport and road safety advocate and practitioner throughout his career. We’ll be sharing more about our road safety mission, programme, partners and advocacy campaigns with you soon.
The eSC supports the UN Agenda on Climate Action, recognising the unique educational platform sport can provide inpromoting environmental responsibility, as well as cleaner and greener mobility options.
The eSC supports the UN Environment Programme’s work to improve Air Quality. And we are committed to a net-zero carbon future for the Championship.
eSC Founder and Ambassador Lucas di Grassi will be our advocacy lead on sustainability. Lucas is already working in support of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) in his capacity as Air Quality Champion and as a leading advocate for the UNEP- and WHO-backed BreatheLife campaign for clean air.
We’ll be sharing more about our environmental mission, programme, partners and advocacy campaigns with you soon.
Shared micromobility services can play a vitally important part in addressing the needs of people excluded from safe, affordable and clean mobility options. All too often, communities who experience transport poverty are also excluded from the wider economic, social and public health benefits that such access enables.
Accordingly, the eSC is committed to promoting mobility equity and encouraging the widest possible reach of affordable micromobility networks, services and protected infrastructure.
Motorsport itself has only recently begun to address issues of diversity and inclusion. eSC strongly supports these and other important steps to broaden the sport’s relevance and representation.
From the very beginning, our ambition has been to establish the most accessible and inclusive type of motorsport as possible. We are reaching out and listening to stakeholders to inform and guide how best to achieve this, in both our public policy and advocacy work, as well as in our operational practices.
