Nokian Tyres publishes 2014 CSI report
The latest GRI G4 compliant Corporate Sustainability Report from Nokian Tyres is now available. This report, says the tyre maker, describes Nokian Tyres’ activities from the perspective of environmental, social and economic responsibility as part of an international value chain.
“Last year was a period of significant international events in our key markets,” commented Ari Lehtoranta, president and CEO of Nokian Tyres. “In addition to the developments in Ukraine, the devaluation of the rouble and the decline in oil prices affected our business through the Russian economy. Ensuring the well-being of our personnel has been especially important for us now that the political situation is affecting their everyday lives. At the end of the year, we became a member of the IRSG (International Rubber Study Group). This is a significant development for us, as there is a growing interest in the origin of products and natural rubber forms a challenge in terms of sustainable tyre production. Our membership in this global platform for rubber producers and consumers enables us to contribute to the sustainable development of rubber production in the future.”
