ESG

Michelin works closely with its suppliers to monitor ESG risks, based on a continuous improvement approach through EcoVadis and RubberWay™.

EcoVadis

Results from the EcoVadis suppliers’ assessments are shared and if improvements are required, corrective action plans are deployed.

In 2020, suppliers representing more than 85% of Groups’ expenditures in natural rubber were evaluated by EcoVadis. 70% of supply is at ‘confirmed’ ESG performance and 15%, at an advanced level.

•	Confirmed performance as per the EcoVadis assessment methodology is ≥45/100 •	Per pillar score: At confirmed level with a minimum of 50/100.
