For almost 10 years, the Tour de France has been fully invested in an endeavour to make its organisation more environmentally responsible. In 2017, it was one of the founding members of the charter of 15 environmentally responsible commitments under the aegis of the Ministry of Sports and WWF France.

The charter is a sporting adaptation of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations and commits the Tour de France to achieving a series of social and environmental goals.
