Apollo Tyres improves value chain sustainability in Bengaluru

LinkedIn +

To reduce the company’s carbon footprint across its value chain, Apollo Tyres has started a pilot initiative utilizing EVs for the delivery of its tires from its regional distribution center to business partners in Bengaluru, Southern India.

The tire maker hopes the initiative will address the issue of pollution and provide a solution to mitigate the impacts of climate change. As tire manufacturing has a fairly large value chain, the resulting emissions have a considerable impact on a company’s annual carbon footprint.

“We have embarked on a novel approach of making the delivery of our tires green,” commented Satish Sharma, president, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, Apollo Tyres. “The company has put in place provision for electrification of delivery vehicles in the last-mile connectivity. In addition to this pilot initiative in Bengaluru, we are in touch with our delivery partners for a similar deployment of EVs in other locations as well.”

Apollo, which reports its carbon footprint annually, is continuing to implement a range of changes to reduce its carbon footprint, such as increasing the amount of sustainable and renewable materials in its products and by using renewable energy for manufacturing.
