Clean energy

Our facilities are monitored and optimized to use less energy.

Some of them use solar panels, wind power and local
alternative methods to get energy, preserving air quality.

Recycling

Used tires can be 100% recovered, either as energy
or raw material.

They are reused as filling material, soundproof walls, railroad ties, drainage solutions and synthetic surfaces for sports fields and playgrounds.

Currently, 95% of end-of-life tires are recovered in Europe and 97% in Brazil.

Renewal of natural rubber

We have re-forestation program in place to ensure the sustainability of rubber (Hevea) tree cultivation. We conduct biological and agricultural research to improve the quality of natural rubber and combat diseases in Hevea trees.

Biodiversity

More than 2,700 acres of our Bahia, Brazil rubber plantation have been kept totally uncultivated to help protect the forest's flora and fauna.
