WHY SUSTAINABLE MOBILITY
What means "sustainable"?
Sustainable development was defined in 1987 by a United Nations World Commission on Environment and Development as "a form of progress which allows us to meet the needs of present generations without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs."
The Michelin Performance and Responsibility approach is the expression of the sustainable development strategy and corporate social responsibility of the Michelin Group.
In April 2002, the Michelin Group, at the initiative of its Managing Partners, Edouard Michelin and René Zingraff, launched an approach known as Michelin Performance and Responsibility. Based on the Group’s five values, its purpose is to establish a formal framework for the exercise of the Group’s responsibilities to each category of its audience. The approach aims to measure and reduce the gap between the Group’s values and their implementation. To a large extent, it takes existing practices from the Michelin culture and translates them into management principles. Driven by a constant will to innovate, it helps us provide a long-term response to issues pertaining to mobility and to the sustainability of the Company.
Following the internal diagnostics carried out in 2002, we published the Michelin Performance and Responsibility Charter.
Michelin is committed to an approach of balanced and responsible long-term development, and the progress we make are to be measured over time.
