"Three significant factors have caused the dramatic increase of childhood obesity: home environment, availability of fast foods and the controversial media influence."

 

In active sentences, the subject of the sentence is the actor of the verb or the doer of the action. In passive sentences, the subject of the sentence is the receiver of the action.

 

In your sentence, the subject is "three significant factors". When the subject follows the verb (in the object position), the sentence is passive.
