  • They are listed among the Top 10% must sustainable publicly traded companies.


While Nokian Tyres, based in Nokia, Finland, is not the only company striving to reduce the environmental impact of its production process, we think the world would be a better place if all others matched the tire brand’s efforts. Nokian released its 2019 sustainability report and many highlights are worth mentioning, including recycling 100% of its production waste at its factory in Nokia, Finland.

Moving forward, Nokian Tyres has committed to Science Based Targets some extremely aspiring goals which include reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 40% per ton of tires by 2030 from a 2015 base year, and much more. So far, they’ve managed to reduce C02 emissions by 44% since 2013. They’ve also lowered their municipal water consumption by 38% over the same period of time.
