Sustainable Development Committee

Who are they?

In December of last year, the 6.50 Ecology Committee began reflecting upon ways and ideas in which our Class could become a source of innovation in the field of sustainable development.

This Committee is charged with searching for, and promoting, concrete solutions that can be applied to the Mini 6.50 specificities. This work is being carried out in collaboration with the association LA VAGUE.

The basis for our reflections was the response to the ’Ecology’ questionnaire that was sent to our 2020 members. This resulted in an analysis of the suggestions, the adjudged relevance thereof , the symbolic value and the cost to ratio of implementation/impact .

We’ll keep you informed of its progress on a regular basis.

Any thoughts/modifications are welcome.

- E-9-C: recovery line should not be the floating line of the recovery sling.

- E-14-a-c: new text on protection of internal connection only concerns the assembly of lithium batteries.
