Inside the Dakar
AN ECO-RESPONSIBLE EVENT
A route drawn up in collaboration with the local authorities of each country. Selective sorting and waste treatment programme in cooperation with local authorities. 100 tonnes of waste collected and recycled from the bivouacs,
58 of which are from the “Punto Verde”. Guided tours of the bivouacs organised in collaboration with local authorities, aimed at local people and children from underprivileged backgrounds.
SAFETY: AN OBSESSION
The safety of competitors, spectators and other accredited persons is the organisation’s primary concern. Just like with any other major extreme sporting adventure, the Dakar is not without risk. The organisation makes every effort to limit to these risks as much as possible.
Every year the safety procedures are revised and optimised.
