(2) from the supply of raw materials and production to the use and recycling phases
(3) Last mile/kilometer being understood as until the minimum legal tread depth (1.6 mm in Europe). Please refer to the minimum legal tread depth in your country. More information can be found at https://middle-east.michelin.com/performancemadetolast
The following tyre lines are designed to offer high level of longevity and performance that lasts: MICHELIN CrossClimate², MICHELIN CrossClimate 2 SUV, MICHELIN Primacy 4+, MICHELIN e.Primacy, MICHELIN Pilot Sport 4S, MICHELIN Pilot Sport 5, MICHELIN Pilot Sport EV, MICHELIN Pilot Sport 4 SUV, MICHELIN Alpin 6 and MICHELIN Pilot Alpin 5
(4) Internal calculation comparing MICHELIN Energy (RR>12kg/T) vs MICHELIN e.Primacy and MICHELIN Pilot sport EV(RR <5kg/T)
(5) "everyday waste": corn stover, waste wood, food containers, plastic packaging, plastic bottles…
(6) Cumulative calculated quantity of consumed recycled materials by the Michelin Group between 2020 and 2030 in the fabrication of its tyres with the objective of 40% of recycled materials by 2030.
(7) Michelin considers sustainable materials to be either recycled materials or bio-sourced materials renewable on the timescale of a human life, and which do not compete with the food sector. Michelin does not consider natural materials which are non-renewable on the timescale of a human life to be sustainable - such as oil. As such, some materials, although of natural mineral origin, such as silica, are not taken into account in the Michelin definition of a “sustainable material”.
(8) Based on internal tests, in comparison with the current MICHELIN Primacy 4 235/55R19 105W on the market
(9) Recycled materials are the raw materials generated by any recycling operation by which industrial or post-consumption waste is reprocessed into products, materials, or substances. Energy reuse and the reprocessing of materials for use as energy are excluded. (Based on the definition of the European Directive for Waste).
(10) UPTIS: Unique Puncture-proof Tyre System, an airless tyre developed in association with Maxion, the supplier of a specific rim for the UPTIS tyre.
(11) Corresponding to the weighted average of the mass of the front and rear tyres, respectively of 33% and 46% of sustainable materials.
