Beyond the sporting dimension, Paris–Nice is committed to promoting sustainable mobility. Cycling epitomises leisure and an eco-friendly means of transport and fits in perfectly in the policy of the Tour de France: Riding into the Future.
The organisation's fleet of race vehicles has completed its transition to electric mobility. 50 light vehicles that make up the fleet, is with plug-in hybrid engines.
- Collection zones: In each stage of the race, riders will have 4 to 6 collection zones at their disposal for the items that they have discarded, which will be cleaned up by the organiser.
- Natura 2000 areas: Protecting the environment and safeguarding biodiversity are major concerns for the organisation of Paris–Nice. The Biotope consultant firm has been supporting ASO since 2011 by assessing the impact of the race on the Natura 2000 European network of special nature protection areas. In 2024, the race will go through 28 sensitive areas, which will be strictly monitored. These impact assessments go beyond Natura 2000 sites and also look at natural reserves, regional natural parks and other areas crossed by the race. Protective measures are put on the table to make the public aware of the sensitivity of these places.
- Waste Management: A technical document dedicated to waste management is addressed to the host cities, in order to accompany them in implementing an efficient waste management system and to standardize waste sorting throughout the event. In 2024, Paris-Nice becomes a signatory of the eco-event charter of the City of Nice. The event will be evaluated this year around 6 themes:
- Environmentally respectful communication
- Clean mobility
- Waste prevention
- Environmental protection and resource conservation
- Eco-responsible purchasing
- Solidarity action
Fighting for inclusion
- For the seventh time in a row, Paris–Nice will roll out the red carpet for the French national team of the French Federation for Adapted Sports on the course of the team time trial held in Auxerre on Tuesday 5th March.
- In 2022, ASO extended its financial support to the Federation for three years to allow its champions to train with adapted material, scout new talents and develop the Savoir Rouler à Vélo programme as adapted to its target audience.
- In Paris-Nice, 2 teams of 2 riders from the French FFSA team will therefore start from Auxerre on March 5th around 1:40 PM (1 hour before the professionals).
