Omni United has been certified as a carbon neutral company for its flagship Radar tire brand.
The company, working with Ernst & Young, conducted a 12-month assessment of the brand’s total greenhouse gas emissions between April 2011 and March 2012.
The certification is a result of the tire company’s ability to meet certification standards as well as a multi-faceted approach to reach net zero emissions. Omni said it has committed to driving sustainable business practices internally, in addition supporting hydro energy green projects spread across China.
"We cannot transform the world alone, but want to be a role model and show that if a small company like ours can invest the time, effort, and resources necessary to make this change, then anyone can,” said G.S. Sareen, president and CEO of Omni United. “This is owed to our children and the generations to come not to continue down the path we have been on.”
Omni United plans to continue diversify its green activities in order to generate positive carbon credits in the future, it said.
