The Tour de France Femmes has agreed a partnership with French utility company Suez, which will focus on reducing the cycling race’s environmental footprint.
- Suez and the Tour de France Femmes will provide water, alongside eco-designed drinking bottles and reusable cups
- Suez to give the public information on access points and water quality through the ‘Mon Eau’ app
- Tour de France Femmes to eradicate single-use plastic packaging containers in all its areas hosting the public and guests
Suez deepens its women’s cycling ties, after becoming a co-sponsor of the FDJ-Suez team last year.
“This partnership represents another step in our commitment to women’s sport and the promotion of exemplary environmental practices,” said Sabrina Soussan, chairman and chief executive of Suez.
The 2023 Tour de France Femmes is scheduled to take place from 23rd to 30th July, with 154 riders from 22 teams set to compete over eight stages spanning 956 kilometres.
