The Tire Industry Project (TIP)—currently comprised of 10 leading tire companies—is the primary global forum for the tire industry on sustainability issues. Formed in 2005, TIP serves as a global, voluntary, CEO-led initiative, representing approximately 65 percent of the world’s tire manufacturing capacity.
Its aim is to proactively identify and address the potential human health and environmental impacts associated with the life cycle impacts of tires to contribute to a more sustainable future.
TIP employs rigorous scientific analysis to key material considerations, such as tire and road wear particles (TRWP), nanomaterials, and tire granulates.
With around 70% of natural rubber used in tire production members of TIP recognize the importance of their contribution to sustainable natural rubber
TIP has initiated and supported extensive research on ELT management systems globally, and is continually evaluating best practices, innovative methods, and recovery rates.
TIP has developed resources such as environmental key performance indicators and Product Category Rules.
