Sustainability

We pave the way for sustainability-driven innovation with our tire technology designed to define the future of our planet.

E.Circle Process

We remain committed to a sustainable environment from the initial process of designing tires to identifying the hazards of chemical substances used for our products throughout the planning, manufacturing,
and disposal processes.

  • sustainability-icon-01

    Planning and Research

    Efforts made to develop user-based product concepts, tap into emerging technologies, and define a product’s feature set, ultimately providing a more valuable experience

  • sustainability-icon-02

    Design

    Efforts made to look into global chemical information systems to identify any hazards posed by chemical substances that go into products, to design lightweight tires to reduce the rolling resistance and energy consumption, and to design tires with long-lasting performance

  • sustainability-icon-03

    Raw Material Procurement

    Efforts made to scout for green raw materials applicable to tires and the relevant suppliers

  • sustainability-icon-04

    Manufacturing

    Efforts made to introduce equipment and facilities designed to reduce waste and pollutants, as well as water and energy consumption

  • sustainability-icon-05

    Disposal

    Efforts made to recycle end-of-life tires into raw materials for new tires or other rubber products

Material Compound Technology

When it comes to handling raw materials, we reach out to the following four solutions: recycling, renewable, reducing, reusable. Our green innovation is defined to raise the proportion of green raw materials and minimize energy waste in the manufacturing process, protect the environment, and drive forward to technological progress.
