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 vehicle fleet is making the transition to electric mobility. All the vehicles that make up the fleet, 50 in total, are either plug-in hybrids or electric vehicles.
An ecoresponsible approach
- Collection areas: In each stage of the race, riders will have 5 collection areas at their disposal for the items that they have discarded and have been 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 Paris–Nice since 2011 by assessing the impact of the race on the Natura 2000 European network of special nature protection areas. In 2021, the race will go through 27 such areas, which will be strictly monitored.
Fighting for inclusion
For the fourth 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 individual time trial held in Gien on Tuesday 9 March.
ASO has pledged its financial support to the Federation for three years to allow its champions to train with adapted material and to scout new talents.
In Paris–Nice, this team will tackle the same course as the pros just half an hour before the race.
