Sustainability is an integral part of Continental Tires “Vision 2030” strategy program. Our goal is to be the most progressive tire company in terms of environmental and social responsibility by 2030.
An essential raw material for excellent tire functionality remains natural rubber. Hence, we are committed to responsibly sourced natural rubber and proactively strive to minimize all environmental, human rights and social risks that we identify along our global natural rubber supply chain.
We systematically invest in research and development in the fields of new technologies, alternative materials and environmentally compatible production processes. Through these efforts, we are aiming for a gradual transition to 100 percent sustainably produced materials in our tire products as well as a 100 percent responsible supply chain by 2050 at the latest.
Claus Petschick, Head of Sustainability at Continental Tires:
“We actively take responsibility in our supply chains. Only when natural rubber is responsibly sourced we consider it a sustainable material. For us, digitalization and education are the keys to enhancing the transparency of our natural rubber supply chains.”
