Contribute to society
by contributing to the regions’vitality
and encouraging employee involvement

Michelin firmly believes that the Company can bring together a wide diversity of stakeholders from the public and private-sectors to meet common economic, social, societal, and environmental challenges. 

Dialog with civil society

Today NGOs have become key stakeholders that challenges the Group.  

Internationally and since April 2015, the Group has been working with WWF to develop sustainable natural rubber in several regions of the world. Michelin also has a regular dialog with other NGOs including Oxfam, Greenpeace, the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH), Human Rights Watch, etc. It also maintains very close ties with NGOs involved in transportation, road safety and sustainable mobility, such as Transport & Environment in Europe. Locally, Michelin teams work with hundreds of NGOs on day-to-day issues ranging from road safety to cultural events.

Training in the manufacturing industry

Michelin is investing in training with Hall 32, an unprecedented, multi-partner scheme for jobs in manufacturing, located in Clermont-Ferrand (France). 

The HALL 32 manufacturing job training center is the outcome of a project launched in 2016, with the backing of major stakeholders* in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region and the Académie de Clermont-Ferrand. 

The purpose of this center is to gain a better understanding of the stakes associated with jobs in manufacturing, their attractiveness, recruitment, and training. All of the innovative, concrete initiatives are gathered in a single venue to provide resources that are perfectly suited to the manufacturing industry, a constantly evolving sector that creates jobs. 

Its primary purpose is to raise awareness of these jobs, their requirements, and the opportunities they offer. Its goal is also to attract talents and enable them to acquire the necessary skills by aligning the training offering on companies' requirements. 

 

Partners of 2arami, the association behind the Hall 32 project and whose members include: Banque de France, Limagrain, Michelin, Opcalia, the Rectorat de l’Académie de Clermont-Ferrand (the local education authority), ViaMécathe Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes regional authority and the Secrétariat général pour l’investissement (a government body supporting innovation) 

Involvement in local community life

Michelin employees contribute to local community life by volunteering their skills to small businesses in the local economic fabric, tutoring students and young professionals, or developing health, sports and educational activities.

    €9.3 million was allocated to outreach initiatives in communities in the vicinity of the Group’s plants and offices in 2020

Michelin's involvement in its local community makes the Group a more attractive employer in its local labor pool. It also gives employees an opportunity to develop skills in areas other than their regular jobs. Because they are aligned with specific local needs wherever the Group is present, community engagement initiatives vary widely. Here are some examples: 

SOUTH AMERICA

Employees are involved in education, diversity (with the "Beaches for Everyone" project) and upgrading the local environment in general, mostly in close cooperation with local NGOs.

India

Health and hygiene issues occupy nearly half of all volunteers, while a significant share of resources is allocated to programs to boost youth employability.

SOUTH-EAST ASIA

A wide variety of projects are underway, with special emphasis on road safety (mainly because of the intensive use of two-wheeled vehicles) and solidarity with the most disadvantaged population categories.

China

Michelin employees also take part in environmental conservation programs, helping to clean up contaminated or flooded land, maintain wilderness areas and plant new trees, etc.

United States and Europe

Initiatives to support education and attract young people to technical and scientific jobs remain popular, as do charity-related sports events.

Generally speaking, and in line with the Group's businesses, programs to encourage safe mobility are a major area of involvement at local level, particularly when they address children and youth
