Michelin's approach in relations with stakeholders
Michelin’s business development is closely linked to the quality of its interactions with all its stakeholders. These interactions undergird not only its commercial relationships but also its CSR strategy and goals. In addition to enhancing the Group’s performance, this dialog offers a space to design the future of higher-performing, more sustainable mobility together.
These meetings provide an opportunity to expand Michelin’s role in sustainable mobility based on the expectations expressed by representatives of society. They also serve as a forum to address other issues, like Michelin’s role in the local education system or regional economic appeal.
Stakeholder relationships at all levels of the Group
Michelin fosters an open, constructive dialog with stakeholders at the local, national and international levels. This process helps it understand changes in society’s expectations and discover the criticisms and suggestions that help generate new ideas, stimulate innovation and open new horizons for future development.
All Michelin entities are therefore encouraged to identify key stakeholders and build relationships with them at the national and operational levels.
The local director is responsible for site-level stakeholder relationships.
