What We're Doing
The Amgen Tour of California is committed to reducing our environmental impact. We do so through ongoing efforts to save energy and water, recycle, purchase environmentally preferable products, and help raise awareness of environmental issues.
This year, Amgen Tour of California is partnering with Zero Motorcycles to use electric motorcycles in the support fleet for the Big Bear Lake Time Trial stage. The motorcycles have no tailpipe emissions and emit virtually no sound!
We are proud to participate in AEG 1EARTH, AEG's corporate environmental sustainability program. Through AEG 1EARTH, we:
- Exchange environmental best practices with other AEG businesses
- Track our environmental performance on a monthly basis, measuring energy consumption, water usage, and waste diversion
- Contribute to AEG’s progress towards its 2020 Environmental Goals

What You Can Do
We're doing our best to reduce our environmental impact and hope you will join us in our efforts. Here are a few tips to make your visit to our events more environmentally friendly:
- Consider walking, biking, taking public transit, or carpooling to avoid traffic, save on gas and parking, and reduce your carbon footprint.
- Help us increase our recycling rate by placing all waste and recyclables into designated receptacles – if you aren’t sure where to put something, please ask!
- Use only as many disposable items (e.g., paper towels, napkins, utensils) as you need
- Use your Amgen Tour of California Reusable Bag for groceries, errands, and for watching the action on this year’s tour!
