Toyo Supports Initiative for Sustainable Natural Rubber

Toyo Tire & Rubber Co. has announced it will voluntarily support and participate in the Sustainable Natural Rubber Initiative (SNR-i), an International Rubber Study Group (“IRSG”) effort to ensure the sustainability of natural rubber as a resource.

Toyo said its participation in SNR-i will strengthen the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives across the entire supply chain while helping to achieve a sustainable natural rubber economy.

IRSG’s initiative establishes the five guidelines for the natural rubber supply chain from production to consumption. The guidelines include:

  1.  Supporting improvement of productivity
2.  Enhancing natural rubber quality
3.  Supporting forest sustainability
4.  Water management
5.  Respect for human and labor rights

Toyo said in a press release that the Toyo Tires Group has established “Collaboration with business partners” as a priority theme of its CSR policy. Additionally, the tiremaker created the “Toyo Tires Group CSR Procurement Guidelines.”
