Sustainability & Conservation
We are committed to promoting eco-friendly practices and responsible tire usage for a greener future. Here, you will find valuable information, expert advice, and innovative solutions to minimize the environmental impact of tires throughout their lifecycle.
Tire Usage Perspective
More than 60% of the world’s oil output is used in transportation. In trucks/buses, tires contribute to approximately 30% of fuel consumption, or one full tank on every 3 trucks/buses, that can be saved by using the right tires with correct maintenance.
After years of research, Giti Tire successfully developed tire production that consumes less fuel without sacrificing performance, and is verified by the US Environmental Protection agency, SmartWay.
In addition, Giti Tire continually attempts to educate the public about the most fuel efficient ways to make use of a tire, how to select and maintain energy saving tires while providing the most professional solutions, and giving advice to fleets and users on how to reduce fuel consumption and cost. By providing the right tires and relevant technical support, Giti Tire will help promote sustainable development of the industry while creating environmental benefits to the society.
Tire Manufacturing Perspective
Energy and non-renewable raw materials are becoming scarcer and more expensive. Optimizing their use and conserving them over the long term is essential. The challenge is to meet all of these goals without sacrificing tire performance, while being mindful of our responsibility to the environment and the people who live in it.
In this way, Giti Tire is committed to reducing air emissions, water emissions, scrap and indirect materials, while promoting the reuse of old tire and increasing recycling.
100 years of
Environmental Conservation Perspective
Giti Tire’s parent company has donated USD $1 million for 260,000 hectares of conservation projects in various areas, through a partnership agreement with Conservation International (CI).
Protecting these forest areas from conversion into vegetation with lower biomass (tree plantations or agriculture) conserves about 100 tons of carbon per hectare, or 26 million tons of carbon in total. This is equivalent to about 100 years of carbon emissions resulting from coal burning at Giti Tire plants.
AWARDS & RECOGNITION
Giti Tire’s high levels of production efficiency, quality control, and driving experience have won the accolades of automotive companies and drivers from around the world.
