Global Sustainable Mobility Player
Building the sustainable mobility of tomorrow

Because tomorrow's mobility will have to be cleaner, safer, more accessible, more efficient, Michelin, as recognised player in international bodies, constantly unites and takes action to provide solutions.

Building the sustainable mobility of tomorrow


Transportation currently accounts for nearly a quarter of energy-related CO₂ emissions and 15%-17% of the total share of emissions generated by human activity. If nothing changes, the growing demand for mobility could see that figure more than double by 2050.

Michelin is therefore focusing its approach on three priorities: 

  • The development of new technologies and energies that will enable the widespread use of clean vehicles with long range. Michelin intends to make its contribution to the vehicle of the future through developments in its products and services (tires), new technologies (fuel cells and autonomous vehicles) and co-innovation workshops at Movin'On. 
  • Transforming the mobility of goods and people through the use of intelligent systems in Michelin's products and services to support changing usage. 
  • Urban mobility. With 70% of the world's population expected to live in cities by 2050, urban mobility is a key concern for Michelin. The Group is actively participating in the new mobility ecosystems by playing a unifying role.  

The Movin'On ecosystem

Movin'On, which was created and inspired by Michelin, is the first global co-innovation ecosystem for sustainable mobility.

Movin'On has various tools for providing concrete solutions and innovations to meet everyone's mobility requirements, with the aim of contributing to society's advancement and protecting the planet:
  • The Movin'On Ecosystem

  • LABs

    A "Think and Do Tank" format that fosters innovation in ecosystems. Movin'On currently has two LABs: one in Paris and the other in Montreal

  • Communities of interest

    Working groups that study a problem related to our key priorities, develop a common vision and together test new mobility solutions.

  • Movin’On Startup Booster

    A support system that helps startups find partners in order to fast-track the development of sustainable mobility solutions.

  • The Design Challenge

    A global mobility design competition that rewards innovative projects addressing sustainable mobility of the future

  • The Experts Market Place

    An application that brings experts and project owners together.

  • The Movin'On LABs
  • Communities of interest
  • The Startup Booster
  • The Design Challenge
  • The Experts Market Place

The ecosystem's flagship gatherings: 

  • The Movin'On Summit: the annual global sustainable mobility summit, which creates the right conditions for fostering disruption, connections and action. 
  • Digital meetings: organized regularly throughout the year to bring together partners and experts. 


Michelin is actively involved in the SuM4All (Sustainable Mobility for All) global initiative led by the World Bank, which promotes a shared ambition for sustainable mobility, structured around four pillars: environmentally friendly, safe, efficient and accessible/inclusive.

Drawing on the expertise and data of some 50 member organizations, SuM4All has developed a powerful diagnostic and policy decision-making tool (policy decision-making tool) for mobility in the broader context of the Sustainable Development Goals.

In 2020-2021, Michelin actively participated, through its local teams, in the first test of this tool in South Africa.

In 2022, the Group is managing a "safe mobility" project with the International Road Federation (IRF), with the support of the Corporate Foundation, to translate public road safety policies into operational guidelines.

Michelin is also involved in the project launched by the FIA Foundation on the inclusion of mobility, which aims to produce a practical guide to ensure greater representation by women in the sector.

The Tire Industry Project (TIP)

Formed in 2005, the Tire Industry Project (TIP) is the primary global forum for the tire industry on sustainability issues. It is comprised of 11 leading companies representing approximately 65% of the world’s tire manufacturing capacity.

It aims to identify and address the potential human health and environmental impacts of tires throughout their lifecycle and contribute to a more sustainable future.

Collective approach at the tire sector level

In collaboration with the WBCSD, Michelin and all the companies of the Tire Industry Project have jointly drawn up a roadmap of the UN Sustainable Development Goals for the tire sector (TIP SDGs Roadmap) : « Sustainability Driven: Accelerating Impact with the Tire Sector SDG Roadmap ».

This Roadmap offers a framework for action that outlines impactful pathways for the entire sector to contribute to the ambitions of the SDGs. The Roadmap aims to guide, inform, and support decision-making along the value chain, encourage stakeholder dialogue and inspire action-oriented initiatives among industry peers and beyond.

The Roadmap aims to become a key reference for any tire-value-chain stakeholder that aspires to sustainable business. For people and planet, the Roadmap offers inspirational actions and case studies toward a future of sustainable mobility.
Florent Menegaux, Group Michelin CEO

TIP identified 8 Sustainable Development Goals as those where the sector has the potential to have the highest impact through collective multi-stakeholder action. SDG 8 (decent work and economic growth) and 12 (responsible consumption and production) map against the Roadmap actions most frequently.

Transport Decarbonisation Alliance

In 2018, Michelin was one of the founding members of a pioneering public/private partnership coalition, the Transport Decarbonization Alliance (TDA), which brings together countries, cities (or regions) and companies that are major players in the systemic transformation of mobility. TDA currently has 27 members, all committed to finding concrete solutions for a "net-zero emissions" sector by 2050.

Focused on collaborative action, TDA works on topics of common interest to the "3 Cs", Countries, Cities, Companies: urban freight, recharging infrastructures, soft mobility, etc. At the international level, TDA is now recognized as an original coalition, providing operational solutions to decarbonize transport.

World Business Council on Sustainable Development (WBCSD)

The WBCSD is a global organization of over 200 businesses from all sectors of the economy, working together to accelerate the transition towards a sustainable world.
Since 1995, WBCSD has been working with member companies along and across value chains to deliver impactful business solutions to the most challenging sustainability issues.
