For People

The Michelin Group was built "For and through people", which enables each person to become what he or she is.

The way we work with teams, partners and the communities in our ecosystem bear witness to this.

Every day, Michelin works alongside those who inspire us: our customers, our employees, our partners and our shareholders, among others.

The Group expects everyone to behave in ways consistent with ethical principles and our values grounded in mutual respect; we place particular importance on including all forms of diversity.

At Michelin, we put human rights at the center of our operations, whether regarding employees, suppliers, local communities, customers, or the public at large. Promoting human rights is part of Michelin’s DNA.
