SDGs: a roadmap for a sustainable future

Tires keep the world moving. The tire sector and its value chain have a vital role to play in environmentally friendly, safe, efficient and accessible mobility for all.

 

TIP followed the three-step process outlined in WBCSD’s SDG Sector Roadmap Guidelines to explore, articulate and realize a shared vision for the sector to contribute to the SDGs. The tire sector interacts with all 17 SDGs; however, this Roadmap focuses on areas where the sector has the greatest potential to lead, influence and accelerate SDG action.

As such, we identified eight SDGs as priorities and where the sector can have the highest impact through multi-stakeholder action – with SDG 8 (decent work and economic growth) and 12 (responsible consumption and 1 production) mapping against the Roadmap actions most frequently.

 

Explore the links below to discover where the tire-sector can have the greatest positive impact on the SDGs.
