Reacting to Yokohama Rubber’s policy revision, GPSNR Platform Director Stefano Savi, said, ''Yokohama Rubber's compliance with the GPSNR policy framework reflects their commitment to a fair, equitable and sustainable natural rubber value chain. Since GPSNR finds 50 percent of the natural rubber demand represented in its membership, the adoption of the policy framework by Yokohama Rubber and other member companies is a step ahead for the industry at large.''
