Our commitments

Our environnemental approach

Our environmental approach

Each year, CentraleSupelec is committed to preserving the environment within the RAID and the Night N’ Day. This commitment is essential in a context of dwindling resources and climate change. This commitment to preserving the landscapes through which we make our competitors run is reflected in the environmental management system of our association.

Our approach has enabled us to be certified in accordance with the ISO 14001 standard since July 2005.

This certification ensures the effectiveness and the sustainability of our environmental commitments. It is also a guarantee of seriousness for our partners and local authorities.

For this 2022 edition, BNP Paribas is once again supporting our environmental approach as an environmental partner of the Raid.

Our association is therefore committed to the following points, which correspond to a significant proportion of the expenditure items identified in our carbon footprint: limiting emissions due to travel, both to the events (the location was chosen, among other things, for its relative proximity to Paris, the starting point for the majority of competitors) and on site, responsible waste management, distribution of eco-cups to replace disposable cups, and the rational use of paper (90% of our communication materials carry the Imprim’Vert label). This allows us to reduce our carbon footprint per competitor every year.

Our quality approach

Our quality approach

The essence of our quality approach is the training of the members of the association. The organising team is composed of 80 members, led by second year students. Thus, at the end of the year, a new team in charge of our invents is elected and the experience and know-how acquired are transmitted from one year to the next one.

The Raid, which has been ISO 9001 certified since 2009, is committed to a process of continuous improvement. Throughout the year, our progress is compared to the objectives set by the association’s policy according to measurable indicators on a dashboard, so that we can work on our weaknesses. In addition, a risk and opportunity management approach, combined with the study of stakeholder expectations, allows us to ensure the quality of our offer and its improvement.

Student-companies meeting

The Raid CentraleSupélec is intended to be a privileged place of exchange between company employees and students of the Grandes Ecoles and foreign universities. In this sporting context of surpassing oneself, each moment of the race is thus conducive to meeting, and offers the teams the opportunity to create a unique link.

Team renewal


Every year we are committed to organizing handi-welcoming events.

Night N’Day is open to competitors with disabilities and will be able to accommodate mixed handi-valid teams. This commitment to the inclusion of people with disabilities in our sporting events is a meaningful project for the entire CentraleSupélec Raid team. Through this action, our objective is also to raise awareness among participants of disability and to show that sporting events can be accessible to all.

We want to make Night N’Day a flagship inclusive event on the Saclay Plateau, and extend our commitment to the Raid.

To this end, we have joined forces with the FÉDÉEH, an actor committed to the inclusion of students with disabilities, and in particular through sports practice. The FEDEH encourages us and accompanies us every year to make our event accessible to the disabled.

This year we are continuing our project in partnership with the Dunes d’Espoir association.

Its action consists in allowing young people with disabilities to participate in high-level competitions even when their disability would not allow them to run alone.

During Night N’Day 2020, you will have the opportunity to participate in this action, by assembling a joëlette crew. The crews will be made up of experienced Dunes d’Espoir riders and volunteer competitors.

Security is a fundamental value of our organization, and is therefore our top priority.

All members of the association are regularly sensitized to minimise risks. Daily, we do our best to avoid any danger, but if this is not enough, more than half of the staff receive first aid training (PSC1) in order to have the first tools necessary to deal with an emergency situation.

During our races, the Raid CentraleSupélec calls upon doctors specialized in such events. We have been working with Dokever for 15 years. This company has adequate and powerful resources at its disposal to respond to all emergency situations that we may encounter and ensure the safety of our competitors.

During the race, our specific organisation allows us to minimise the risks. In particular, we need to keep a close eye on the evolution and position of our competitors. To do this, each team is equipped with a GPS tracker that allows us to locate it, and members of the organization are regularly positioned on the race. The entire team is in constant communication, thanks to the total radio coverage set up by Progevent, the information circulates quickly and well with the race management. So there is no shadow on the race, and this allows us to intervene very quickly in case of emergency.
