About Michelin

Innovations for a world on the move - from high-tech tires to digital services, restaurant and hotel guides, maps to mobile travel apps.

From premium tires & star kitchens ...

They were true visionaries: the brothers André and Édouard Michelin knew early on that driving a car is more than just getting from A to B. They packed this added value into a manual. It contained addresses of fuel depots, workshops, restaurants or accommodation: the MICHELIN Guide was born, today the most renowned restaurant guide in the world. The company founded more than 130 years ago by the Michelin brothers in Clermont-Ferrand, France, with just over 50 employees, has grown into a global, diversified mobility group - and the visionary drive of the founders is more present than ever: What was the first detachable Bicycle tire in 1891 or special tire for the legendary electric vehicle Jamais Contente in 1899, are for example today tires from Michelin, which consist of 58 percent sustainable materials. The MICHELIN Vision Concept tire is also an innovation: airless, made of organic material, cross-linked and equipped with a tread that can be renewed with a 3D printer.

Growing sustainably means growing profitably...

With tires:
The Michelin Group will continue to expand, invest and develop innovative high-performance products. Tires are becoming more and more sustainable and networked: Michelin has presented a tire that already consists of 58 percent sustainable materials. MICHELIN tires equipped with RFID chips provide valuable information for better, more efficient and networked mobility - and underpin the company's technological leadership. Growth areas are electromobility, the road transport segment as well as products and services in special markets for mining, earthmoving, agricultural, aircraft and two-wheeler tires.
Around tyres:
Connected mobility opens the way for the development of innovative services and solutions, for example for fleets. As the market leader in connected tires and a key partner in digital fleet management, Michelin creates added value for its corporate customers: with solutions that make fleets more efficient, simplify tire maintenance, increase fleet availability and safety, and reduce consumption and maintenance costs as well as environmental impact.
Beyond tires:
Michelin solutions are not only on the road. With the WISAMO sailing system for cargo ships, Michelin is rethinking transport on the world's oceans - and is thus making an important contribution to sustainable shipping. The system contains Michelin's traditionally extensive expertise in high-tech materials and process engineering. Such and other solutions are created in our own incubators, through acquisitions and together with partners - they go far beyond tires. The high-tech materials business is divided into four divisions: sustainable and flexible high-performance composites, medical applications, metal 3D printing and hydrogen mobility.

A company that is sustainable?

Yes, of course! Because at Michelin, every production step, every investment and every strategic decision contributes to the sustainable, future-proof orientation of the company. Michelin calls this approach, which is closely linked to the overall strategy of the company, “all sustainable”. 

Michelins targets for 2030

Michelin wants to set global standards in employee engagement and occupational safety. Diversity and inclusion are lived in all facets. The added value is designed in the best possible way and in the interests of the customer.
The long-term goal is climate neutrality in production and energy by 2050. Michelin products contribute to climate neutrality during use. Michelin's production sites impress with the best possible ecological footprint. By 2050, all products will be fully recyclable.
Michelin will grow substantially by 2030. The return on investment is then more than 10.5 percent. The brand value remains excellent, the pace of innovation in products and services is high.
