A word by Executive Director



“The Michelin Corporate Foundation aims to follow and develop Michelin’s philantropic tradition in five fields: sustainable mobility, sport and health, education and the community, protecting the environment, and heritage and the arts.
Its action during its first year of existence illustrates the variety of the projects supported in each of the five fields, at the service of general interest and in concordance with Michelin’s values and engagement. With the help of especially-motivated employees of the Group, the Foundation has strongly involved itself in the life of local communities. Its contributions have made it possible to set up or support numerous projects, often innovative and especially useful ones.
The Michelin Corporate Foundation will, without a doubt, manage to multiply its philanthropic actions in the future, and through them radiate the values the Group holds so dear.”
