More than 420 innovative projects have become reality since the creation of the Michelin Foundation in 2014.

  • An online decision support tool, launched under the aegis of the World Bank and its Sustainable Mobility for All (SuM4All) initiative for countries that have pledged to support the UN Sustainable Development Goals and signed the Paris climate agreement. It lets countries assess their performance against their peers, explore a catalogue of public policy measures that have already been successfully deployed and use them to craft a custom action plan tailored to their particular situation.
  • The Solar Impulse Foundation, through the 1000 Solutions Challenge and the World Alliance for Efficient Solutions, has the primary aim of reconciling economic performance with the environment, by promoting products, services and clean technologies that are profitable and support economic growth, while also protecting the environment and optimizing the use of natural resources (the "Efficient Solutions").
  • Association Autisme Info Service, which has opened France’s first national, free-of-charge hotline to provide, information, support and guidance to people with autism, their friends and family, and the professionals who interact with them. The platform went live on April 2, 2019.
  • The Chemins d'Avenirs Association, which is dedicated to enabling middle school, high school and university students in rural areas and small towns to access as many opportunities to realize their potential as their peers in major cities. Its initiatives are built around a blend of personal mentoring, topic-based training and additional opportunities that the Association spins into an eco-system of success for each program participant.
  • The “Largest Museum in France” campaign being led by the Fondation pour La Sauvegarde de l’Art Français to preserve and showcase works of art located in towns throughout France. Michelin employees at the Bourges, Roanne and Vannes plants have been invited to take part in the campaign, while the La Sauvegarde de l’Art Français has been supported by the Michelin Foundation since 2014.
