How to minimize your environmental impact during your stay in LILLE?

Preserving the environment is a major concern today. Here are a few tips to reduce your ecological footprint during your stay in Lille during the Rugby World Cup.

Use public transport

Lille has an excellent public transport network, including metro, tramway and bus services. Favoring these modes of transport over the private car helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Walk or use a bicycle

For short distances, opt for walking or cycling. Lille is a very pleasant city to explore on foot or by bike, with numerous cycle paths and pedestrian zones. The city also has a bicycle rental system called V’Lille.

Save energy and water

Pay attention to your energy and water consumption in your accommodation. Turn off the lights when you leave a room, unplug your electronic devices when you’re not using them, and don’t leave the water running unnecessarily.

Waste sorting

Take part in waste sorting. Use the sorting garbage cans provided to separate recyclables from other waste.

Buy local

Choose local products. This supports the local economy and reduces the carbon footprint associated with transporting goods.

Respect natural sites

If you visit the natural sites around Lille, make sure you leave no trace of your passage. Don’t throw your garbage in nature, and respect the paths and protected areas.


By adopting these simple gestures, you can help preserve the environment while enjoying your stay in Lille.
