Goodyear to adopt 100% renewable energy

The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company announced it will adopt 100% renewable energy at its Goodyear plants across Europe and Turkey in the first of a multiple-phase plan to procure 100% renewable energy in all its facilities across Europe, Middle East and Africa by the end of 2022.

The decision, made in conjunction with the company’s development of its long-term climate strategy, will enable Goodyear to reduce operational impacts and aligns with its goal of reducing carbon emissions intensity by 25% by 2023 versus a 2010 baseline. The company already achieved 19% intensity reduction in 2020 as reported in its latest corporate responsibility report.

By purchasing around 700,000 megawatt-hours of renewable electricity, Goodyear can ensure that manufacturing plants in France, Germany, Luxembourg, Poland, Slovenia, Turkey and the Netherlands will operate on sustainably sourced electricity. This shift will reduce the company’s carbon footprint by up to 260,000 tons.
