What is COP21?

It is the 21st Session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, which will take place in Paris (France), from November 30th to December 11th, 2015. 

COP21 will be a crucial conference, as it needs to achieve a new international agreement on the climate, applicable to all countries, with the aim of keeping global warming below 2°C.

Michelin ambitions

  • In 1992 the first fuel-saving mass produced tyre, the "Green Tyre", was launched by Michelin. It’s now the 6th generation. Michelin continues its efforts to ensure Michelin tyres consume less and less energy, and so help reduce CO₂ emissions. By 2030, all the tyres Michelin sold will consume 20% less energy than they did in 2010.
 
  • In the future all the Michelin production plants will also be more energy efficient. The Group is currently accelerating not only the deployment of more energy-efficient equipment but also its use of clean energy. The ambition of Michelin is simple: a 47% reduction in CO₂ emissions on its sites, worldwide, by 2030*.

Reduction of CO2 emissions

Because, we all should be involved in the protection of the environment, Euromaster reminds you some simple gestures to adopt the eco-driving attitude.

10 advices to limit the fuel consumption and the CO2 emissions of your light vehicle.

 

  •  I regularly check the pressure and the tyre alignment of my vehicle
  •  I keep my vehicle well maintained : filters, spark plugs, oil change, cooling system, air conditioning, exhaust, servicing 
  •  I do not let the engine run for no reason
  •  I anticipate the traffic, avoiding aggressive driving and starts 
  •  I drive below the speed limit.

Reduction of CO2 emissions

  • I spare my rev counter changing gears as soon as possible, no more than 2000RPM
  • I limit the use of air conditioning
  • I do not open my windows at high speed and remove my roof rack
  • I do not overload my vehicle unnecessarily
  • I do carsharing, for both personal and professional usage
