Apollo Tyres Introduces ASNR Policy Based On GPSNR Policy Framework

Apollo Tyres has released its first natural rubber policy document, the Apollo Sustainable Natural Rubber (ASNR) policy, which is fully aligned with the policy framework of the Global Platform for Sustainable Natural Rubber (GPSNR).

The ASNR policy covers eight policy components of commitment to legal compliance, healthy functioning ecosystems, respecting human rights, community livelihoods, increased production efficiency, supply chain assessment and traceability, monitoring and reporting, and driving the effective implementation of all these components.

The policy aims to aid the tyre maker’s business activities while balancing the environmental, social and human rights aspects of the natural rubber supply chain, with the collaboration of the stakeholders involved. Sustainability is one of the key pillars for the company and has a target of being carbon neutral going forward.

GPSNR was founded by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD)’s Tyre Industry Project (TIP) involving various stakeholders like natural rubber farmers, traders and processors, tyre manufacturers, other rubber product manufacturers, car manufacturers and civil service organisations.
