António Guterres invited several of the world’s leaders to convene at the UN Climate Action Summit 2019 in order to recommit to the goals of the Paris Agreement and go further in the fight against climate change. The UN Secretary-General highlighted two key issues: the need to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 45% by 2030 and to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. More mobility, less impact” was how Florent Menegaux summarized the ambitions of the Group in particular and the private sector in general. The Michelin Group CEO underlined that it was essential for all stakeholders to join forces to meet this challenge: “All the public and private stakeholders need to work together: international organizations, cities, governments, civil society (NGOs, think tanks etc.) and companies.” He added: “To move from ambition to action, we need to mobilize everyone, in every sector, in every country. This is why Michelin created the Movin’On ecosystem to find real-world solutions to sustainably improve mobility. Movin’On and the UN are facing the same challenges.”  The next international sustainable mobility summit will be held in Montreal from June 3 to 5, 2020.

Today, the transport sector is responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. Faced with the inevitable rise in temperature, everyone in the world of mobility needs to join forces to act now.  It was therefore logical for transport decarbonization to be one of the main topics on the agenda of the Movin’On Summit in 2019.

  • Hydrogen: a decarbonization solution
    Hydrogen is emerging as an alternative fuel which is clean, competitively priced and capable of cutting carbon emissions. Michelin’s legitimacy as a player in the field is based on over fifteen years’ experience in hydrogen fuel cells. Michelin has actually signed a memorandum of understanding with Faurecia to set up a joint venture including Symbio, with the aim of becoming a world leader.
