*According to the IBU Carbon Footprint grid
– 53,000 spectators transported by shuttle bus from the valley and by Skibus in the resort to limit traffic and the use of private vehicles.
– 80% of the infrastructure is non-permanent. The Sylvie Becaert stadium is the only site on the circuit that has not built a permanent stadium, which has a much greater long-term energy impact. This decision allows an economy of functionality, as the heavy infrastructures (stands, bungalows, sanitary facilities, marquees), installed by regional companies, are used for other events during the rest of the year.
– Accommodation for the majority of the national teams and the organisation in the village to limit transport.
– Measures to reduce electricity consumption: installation of LED lighting in the stadium, limiting the temperature of the premises, reducing the size of the marquees used to welcome the public in order to limit the volume to be heated, limiting the use of generators in order to secure the energy supply necessary for the production of TV images with the installation of a system of inverters.
– Economic support for the region with nearly 5 million euros in economic spin-offs.
– A unifying project with 850 volunteers, mainly from the department, including 35% women and 65% men, with an average age of 52 years and a strong mix of generations.
– An event that brings together the population and the local associative and economic fabric around a common project.

– 2500 secondary school students from the Haute-Savoie department
– 500 high school students from the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region
– The promotion of club sports with the involvement of young people from Le Grand-Bornand and Annecy clubs for the opening of the track and the prize-giving ceremonies.
– A privileged area dedicated to the reception of people with reduced mobility.
