The 2015-initiated collaboration between the Michelin Group and the French office of the World Wide Fund for Nature has been renewed for a further four years. The tyre maker will continue working with WWF France towards sustainability within the natural rubber market.

The Michelin Group already uses a solution from global spend management cloud provider Ivalua for the global management of its 5,000 contracts and 5 million invoices a year across 55 countries. The success of those projects has led Michelin to expand the relationship with Ivalua to cover the provision of a fully integrated source-contract process. Ivalua will provide a global sourcing solution that will automate and streamline sourcing processes across Michelin’s buyer teams in Europe, North America, South America and Asia.
