Contribute to a better sustainable mobility

The Michelin founding brothers have created their first products and services to answer mobility needs of people and goods.

Today in a growing world with demanding environmental requirements, our challenge is to innovate to invent the mobility of tomorrow, a profound shift towards cleaner, more connected road mobility that makes more efficient use of energy and raw materials.

The "Movin On" event at each of its editions reflects the Group's actions in favor of more sustainable mobility.

Bahia plantation

The Bahia Green Gold Program is important to us because it embodies Michelin's sustainable growth strategy. We are convinced that the preservation of the environment can only strengthen economic and social development. Natural rubber is essential for the pneumatic industry because it has irreplaceable technical characteristics. There can therefore be no "sustainable" tires without sustainable rubber growing. At our site in Bahia, Brazil, we reconcile development of our activities, respect for the environment and development of local communities.
