Michelin - Green Factory Initiative

At Michelin, there is a strong sense of responsibility towards deforestation due to industrial development. The focus towards responsible growth and initiatives based on this focus results in careful audit of the environmental impact. At Thervoy, Kandigai, Michelin has started planting saplings at its industrial site. The saplings are planted inside the manufacturing facility as part of the groups ‘Green Factory’ concept. 1800 saplings have been planted inside the Industrial site till date. Also Michelin has pledged that the plant will not draw any water from the industrial zone’s water tables. Instead water will be taken from the Redhills reservoir, an artificial storage lake 20 kilometers from the site.
