Key figures

Environmental benefits

-35% between 2005 and 2014. This MEF reduction compensates the environmental impact of the 5 biggest units of the Group.
44 - the number of types of profitable recyclable waste, thanks to the Group's zero waste approach. In 2014, 49 sites had a recycling rate of over 95% and 24 sites achieved 'zero waste-to-landfill'.
+ 25% longer lasting and improved retreadability for the new MICHELIN X® MULTITM Z range of truck tires for the Asian market.
