UIC promotes its “Low Carbon sustainable rail transport challenge” at Michelin Challenge Bibendum (Chengdu, 11 – 14 November)

  • Sustainable development

From 11 – 14 November, Michelin is organising Challenge Bibendum (http://www.challengebibendum.com/), an international event bringing together political, industry, scientific, and media representatives to discuss the challenges and solutions for sustainable mobility. This year the event is being organised in Chengdu, China, and it promises to showcase the leaders who are building the future through outdoor car activities, high-level meetings, exhibitions, and technological innovations.

Michelin kindly offered the opportunity to promote the five transport-related United Nations Climate Summit commitments in the Challenge Bibendum. Michelin supports the way in which transport is reflected in COP 21 in Paris, and commitments are a big part of it. Michelin is already partner to commitments such as UITP, UEMI and supports the Global Fuel Economy commitment.
