L’Ariégeoise and the environment

Let’s respect and protect our playground!

Registered as an “eco-responsible” approach, the Ariègeoise renewed its partnership with the Regional Natural Park. The convention underlines the fundamentals of the cyclo-sportive: the awareness at the environmental protection, the social cohesion, the waste treatment and the public transportation system.

The cyclo-sportive with the help of SMECTOM, SICTOM and technical services of local authorities set up everything for environmental protection: selective sorting in the provisioning’s, the biodegradable tray meal and recycled dishes.

The investment of the organization is optimal because the sustainability of our cyclo-sportive is closely linked to the respect for the natural environment, trying to minimize the environmental impact on the flora and fauna caused by the passage of thousand cyclists into protected spaces


ENEDIS consolidates its partnership with the Ariègeoise.

ENEDIS in the Ariège decided to be in partnership with the Ariègeoise for two additional years around two common values: the safety and protection of the environmental. ENEDIS invests to adapt the management of the distribution networks to this new stake, very important for our environment.

ENEDIS is also a responsible corporate citizen, attaching a major importance for the agent’s security but also for everyone. This is why you shall see the motorcyclists in charge of the security wearing ENEDIS chasubles.
