Tire industry group launches sustainability roadmap

On May 18, the Tire Industry Project (TIP), a consortium of 11 leading tire companies, announced a roadmap to address the tire industry’s sustainability goals through 2030. The project is part of the Sustainability Development Goals (SGDs), which were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 to address some of the world’s most pressing environmental and societal issues by 2030.

The new report, Sustainability Driven: Accelerating Impact with the Tire Sector SDG Roadmap, was produced by the 11 member companies of TIP in consultation with value-chain stakeholders. The members of the Tire Industry Project (in alphabetical order) are, Bridgestone, Continental, Cooper Tire, Goodyear, Hankook, Kumho Tire, Michelin, Pirelli, Sumitomo Rubber, Toyo Tires, and Yokohama Rubber.

The Roadmap identifies how the tire value chain interacts with the Sustainability Development Goals, as well as the areas where the tire sector can have the most significant impact and the key actions to scale and accelerate the tire industry’s contribution to the SDGs. The Roadmap was produced in consultation with a range of global stakeholders including industry associations, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and subject matter experts, along with support from consultancy firm ERM.
