Toyo Tires becomes member in three relevant ESG indexes
21 Jul 2020
Effective immediately, Toyo Tires is listed in three ESG indexes: the FTSE4Good Index Series, the FTSE Blossom Japan Index and the SOMPO Sustainability Index.
As a globally responsible company, our aim is to operate sustainably in the interests of society and the environment. We are proud to have been awarded for our ESG management (Evironment/Social/Governance) in an independent evaluation. Due to the worldwide spread of COVID-19 infections, there is increasing attention for the sustainability efforts of the companies that are included in the indexes. Our CSR report, which informs our stakeholders about our activities and measures every year, was published last March and includes our 14 sustainability targets. We are actively involved in shaping a sustainable society. Further information: https://www.toyotires-global.com/csr/evaluation/
The inclusion in three important ESG indexes confirms our actions and at the same time we see this honour as an incentive to further expand our activities in this area. As a globally active tire manufacturer, it is our task to make our activities sustainable and to contribute to the realization of sustainable mobility.
