Porsche and Michelin are championing the sustainable extraction of natural rubber with the new Cascade project.

Through the project, both firms will support 1,000 Sumatran small plantation farmers trained by local partners to make extraction methods more environmentally compatible and efficient. The project will also work on the development of higher biodiversity and work safety on the plantations, all with the aim of achieving long-term improvements in the living conditions and economic situation of the Indonesian smallholders.

Indonesia is one of the world's most important rubber production regions and includes the rural Jambi province. Porsche and Michelin identified risks to the sustainability of the supply chain in rubber extraction using an app specially developed for this purpose and by conducting discussions with market participants in the area. Rubber is used in a great many industrial products as a raw material. As an automotive manufacturer, Porsche also contributes to global rubber consumption through its tyres as well as in a wide range of vehicle parts.
