The eighth edition of Ride Green, the sustainability project aimed at safeguarding the areas involved with the Giro d’Italia through separate waste collection, came to an end. In addition to separate waste collection, the Corsa Rosa green project acts through two further channels: education with BiciScuola and sustainable mobility with the Giro-E.
Ride Green is a venture established in 2016 that has produced important results, not only for the local promoters but also for the Partners who, alongside RCS Sport, share its values and usefulness.
In this edition, 83% of over 75 thousand total kilograms of materials were sorted, separated and sent for recycling. A significant figure in line with the positive trend of recent years.
In this process, support came from the municipalities hosting the race’s stage starts and finishes, which acted as an intermediary for promoting the project, ensuring effective supervision that allowed the Giro d’Italia to place itself on the international scene as an increasingly environmentally friendly event, capable of spreading the principles of sustainability and ever increasing the awareness of the public, the local administrations, the partners and all the athletes involved.
Below are the rankings of the most virtuous municipalities that have excelled in separate waste collection, which will be honoured next autumn at the Ride Green Awards.
- Bra 94.01% WC*
- Pergine Valsugana 93.44% WC
- Atripalda 91.66% WC
- Melfi 89.58% WC
