Paragraph 1

Most associate the company Michelin with car tyres, books and stars for quality . However, the French tyre maker is now helping to be more environmentally friendly. The company has tested giant sails that it hopes will make shipping . Shipping currently produces a lot of carbon as oil tankers, container ships and cruise ships rely on fossil fuels to move around the world's . Experts say the industry produces around 940 million tons of CO2 , and that it is responsible for about 2.5 per cent of the world's greenhouse gasses. Michelin's engineers say their revolutionary new sails could reduce the amount of CO2 produced by the shipping by 20 per cent.

Now go to   Paragraph 2.
