Beyond the sporting aspect, Critérium du Dauphiné undertakes to support sustainable mobility. Cycling embodies the ecological means of transport par excellence and fits in perfectly to the Tour de France’s policy: Riding into the Future.


Sustainable mobility

The organisation's vehicle fleet is making the transition to electric mobility. All the vehicles that make up the fleet, around 50, are plug-in hybrid.

The Critérium du Dauphiné encourages its spectator to use train, public transportation, bike, carpooling or any other sustainable transport to come cheer the riders.

Waste Management

A technical document dedicated to waste management was sent to the host cities. Its purpose is one the one hand to assist them in implementing a waste management system and on the other hand to standardize waste sorting throughout the event.

On each stage, 4 to 6 collection zones are available to the riders for disposing their waste.

Natural ressources protection

Respecting the environment and preserving biodiversity are a priority for the organisers of the Critérium du Dauphiné. The BIOTOPE consultancy firm has been assisting the Critérium du Dauphiné since 2011 for performance of impact studies on Natura 2000 sites (the European network of protected remarkable natural areas). In 2024, the race will cross through 36 zones located in 9 departments.


Commitments for inclusiveness

It is the desire of A.S.O. to make race information available to the blind and people with visual impairment. In cooperation with HandiCaPZéro and with the help of Antargaz, a special edition will be produced for the 7th consecutive year. Cycling enthusiasts will be able to take advantage of the roadbook, for free, in braille, with enlarged characters or in audio format (on CD and via download). For further information, visit! 

The Critérium du Dauphiné will once again host the cycling team from the French Federation of Adapted Sports (FFSA) in 2024, opening the time trial between Saint-Germain-Laval and Neulise on Wednesday, June 5th, during the 4th stage.

A.S.O. renewed its financial commitment to the FFSA in 2022 for three years, enabling its champions to train with adapted equipment and also to detect new talents through training programs, and to develop adapted cycling programs tailored to the federation's audience.

Commitment to the youth

As in 2023, the Critérium du Dauphiné will welcome young riders for Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes on stages 4 and 7 for the “Etape des Jeunes”

They will ride the entire time trial between Saint-Germain-Laval and Neulise (stage 4) and the final 58.5km of the stage between Albertville and Samoëns 1600 (stage 7).
