ENGIE helps reduce battery consumption by screens through use of Dark Mode
After the spectator application, rolandgarros.com now offers a Dark Mode function thanks to ENGIE
Since 2022, ENGIE has been strengthening its partnership with the French Open and the French Tennis Federation by developing a Dark Mode for the tournament’s mobile app. Found increasingly in apps and operating systems, this solution provides significant energy savings and improves energy efficiency. A black pixel uses less energy to light up the screen, thus reducing battery consumption by the screen by 63%.
Through the Dark Mode function, the 800,000 users of the Roland-Garros app will contribute to directly reducing their environmental impact.
In 2023, the tournament’s official website, rolandgarros.com, is also offering Dark Mode with ENGIE’s help.
ENGIE invites the children of Fête le Mur, an association supported by the ENGIE Foundation, to play tennis on the Roland-Garros courts
On the occasion of the traditional solidarity day on 27 May, the day before the start of the main draw, this year renamed “Yannick Noah Day”, ENGIE is putting on a dream event: “Come and play on the Roland-Garros courts!” with the chance to play on one of the official tournament courts. On this occasion, ENGIE is inviting young tennis fans to exchange a few balls on the Roland-Garros clay courts.
Among them, more than 300 children from Fête Le Mur, an association created by Yannick Noah that the ENGIE Foundation has been supporting for 24 years, will come and play on the tournament’s clay courts.
Since 1999, the ENGIE Foundation has been supporting Fête le Mur, which contributes to the life of priority education zones by installing tennis courts and training walls at the foot of buildings, so that young people from underprivileged backgrounds can develop their skills by playing tennis. The association works in around thirty underprivileged neighbourhoods in France.
ENGIE commits to preserving biodiversity at the French Open
Green teams make spectators aware of environmental and renewable energy challenges:
Throughout the tournament fortnight, ENGIE is supporting the FFT with the deployment of its green teams. They pass through the stadium to make spectators aware of sustainable development and environmentally friendly gestures by presenting the emblematic actions carried out in a fun way. Equipped with tablets, they invite spectators to answer an environmental quiz, with the chance to win tickets to the 2024 edition of the tournament.
