From the very beginning…
Triathlon Esprit has taken an environmentally and socially responsible approach in many actions and activities.

These values guide our decision-making and have helped the event stand out in several ways in the areas of social,
economic and environmental development over the last several years.


Afin d’assurer la continuité et la cohérence de ses actions et d’envoyer un signal uniforme parmi tous les membres de l’équipe du triathlon ESPRIT, les partenaires, les collaborateurs, les exposants, les fournisseurs et les triathlètes, ESPRIT tient à vous partager sa toute première politique de développement durable.

Le but est de doter l’organisation d’une vision globale et à long terme pour continuer à réduire l’impact des courses du triathlon ESPRIT sur l’environnement. Tous sont invités à adhérer aux principes et aux valeurs de cette politique afin de contribuer activement à la lutte aux changements climatiques, et s’impliquer dans la transition écologique

• Provide bins to collect recyclable and compostable materials at the main site at our stations, and encourage runners to use them correctly.

• Provide a green brigade who will facilitate trash management

• No longer hand out single-used drinking cups on the races, and provide instead recycled or compostable cups. 

• Allowing participants to compensate their carbon footprint relative to attending the event

• Use reusable containers to deliver water to the finish line station. 

• When possible, car travel will be reduced for the working team, and BIXI, public transport, ride-sharing and Communauto services will be promoted.

• Register transport data in order to complete a carbon footprint assessment 

• Through our communications, educate and inform runners and partners of the importance of preserving the environment and the efforts we should all make.

• Inform volunteers about their sustainability-ambassador roles 

• Encourage ride-sharing and active transport to the event site (via newsletter, website, social media, etc.).

• Bring together a Green committee
