An eco-responsible approach

TotalEnergies’ partnership with the Section is part of a cross-functional approach. TotalEnergies supports the sport and promotes an eco-responsible approach in the Club. At the initiative of TotalEnergies, a major partner, and with the expertise of Macron, its equipment supplier, the Section Paloise Béarn Pyrénées has become the first club to develop 100% recycled plastic shirts. With the "Greenest Shirt", the Section is the first French club to develop replica jerseys made of recycled plastics since August 2020, but also since the 2021-2022 season, the match jerseys of its professional and young teams.

Watch the story of the first 100% recycled jersey.

Le maillot le plus vert

The Bearnais club was the first to be awarded the "Fair Play for Planet" label in recognition of its efforts to respect the environment. This label was earned through various actions such as the creation of a CSR commission, the recovery of rainwater for watering the lawn, the promotion of local gastronomy for the general public and partners, the optimization of the computer and digital equipment (reuse and recycling), and an objective by 2022 on the non-use of phytosanitary products on the lawns.

Committed personnel


Alongside the players, employees from the CSTJF and the PERL actively participate in the civic operations on offer, particularly through the Action! program. Some are performed in partnership with the Pau Béarn Pyrénées conurbation. In our view, it is important to support educational actions and contribute to social cohesion within the Béarn region and South West France,  a belief reflected in our actions to offer snacks and meals during the children’s days, and family invitations for matches at the Hameau stadium



Local dynamics involved in the regional enthusiasm for rugby

At each match played by the Section Paloise Béarn Pyrénées at the Hameau stadium, almost 200 seats are reserved for local associations supported by the CSTJF and the PERL. The young players and volunteers of the region’s amateur rugby clubs are also invited to each match at the Hameau to see the region’s top team in action on the field. With the health crisis of 2020, TotalEnergies wanted to express its solidarity with the representatives of the most exposed professions - health personnel, gendarmes, police officers, firemen, etc. by offering them hundreds of tickets for the matches played in Pau.

Our passion for rugby unites us, which is why it is important for us to invite our partners, clients, and employees, with whom we build or foster long-term relationships. Since 2023, our stakeholders have also been invited to support the Section Paloise Lons Féminin women's team, which competes at the highest national level, the Elite.
