Nokian Tires announced it has been included in Dow Jones’ DJSI World sustainability index for the third year in a row.
“We are proud to be included in the top 10 percent of the world’s most sustainable listed companies. Sustainability is at the core of our business and the Nokian Tyres brand. We are proud of the acknowledgement and our whole global team continues to strive towards the goals we have set to our sustainability work, says President & CEO Hille Korhonen.”
The company said it has met its goal of reducing the CO2 emissions of the tires by reducing the rolling resistance by 7% in average (compared to 2013) ahead of schedule.
“Our new factory in the U.S. is one more proof of our sustainability: safety in the workplace and eco-friendliness have been priorities already in the building phase, Korhonen says.”
