Evaluating suppliers

Evaluating the CSR performance of suppliers

The Michelin Group regularly monitors the suppliers we work with through performance evaluations, which include CSR. Assessing our main suppliers in terms of sustainable development is part of our responsible and sustainable purchasing policy.

Since 2012, Michelin has been assessing the CSR performance of our suppliers using the EcoVadis platform. his assessment can be triggered after a risk analysis, during the course of a contract, or prior to a new contract signature or renewal.
