Towards a 100% sustainable tire
Act at every stage in its life cycle

In the face of the climate emergency, the 100% sustainable tire is a challenge that the Group must overcome in the next few years. To achieve this, Michelin is relying all its innovative power, and its capacity to develop new innovative ecosystem technologies, and is acting on every stage of a tire’s life cycle: Design, Manufacture, Logistics, Use, Collection and Recycling.


"Succeeding in making the tire 100% sustainable is surely one of the main challenges to overcome in order to transform Mobility. And who better than Michelin to find the right answers? We are taking concrete action at every stage in the tire’s life cycle.

Florent Menegaux, President of Michelin Group

The tires of the future will be 100% sustainable, throughout their entire life cycle:

  • Design: tires composed of 100% bio-sourced or recycled materials by 2050 and 40% by 2030.
  • Manufacture: net zero COemission production plants by 2050.
  • Logistics: transporting less and better and developing alternative means of transport.
  • Use: low rolling resistance, long-term performance, lessening tire wear particles and connected tires.
  • End-of-life and recycling: making today’s waste into the resources of tomorrow for tires and beyond. Michelin and Bridgestone call for structure to be given to the segment.
