Vaculug Aligns with Tire Sector SDG Roadmap
The tyre industry Sustainable Development Goal Roadmap was launched in May 2021 to give a targeted set of goals for the wider tyre industry.
Vaculug: The First Retreader in the World to pledge Alignment to the Tire Sector SDG Roadmap!
The tyre sector Roadmap is meant to accelerate tyre value-chain impact on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 to address some of the world’s most pressing issues by 2030. The Roadmap identifies how the tyre value chain interacts with the SDGs; the areas where the tyre sector can have the most significant impact; and key actions to scale and accelerate contribution to the SDGs.
Vaculug is the first retreader in the World to pledge Alignment to the Tire Sector SDG Roadmap. The Roadmap lays out TIP's framework and outlines the various pathways for the entire sector to contribute to the goals of the SDG's, which will ultimately create an efficient and low-carbon economy.
This pledge aims to align the Tire Sector SDG Roadmap framework and roadmap created by Tire Industry Project (TIP).
