Apollo Tyres is pushing the sustainable mobility solutions envelope. After producing a concept agricultural tyre using 75% sustainable materials, the company has now announced a similar concept for  passenger vehicle tyres. This is aligned with Apollo Tyres’ sustainability roadmap of increasing the usage of sustainable raw materials to 40 percent by 2030.

The new passenger vehicle tyres, containing 75 percent sustainable materials, use many featured compounding ingredients in different components including bio-based and recycled materials. The sustainable natural rubber, used in these tyres, has been sourced from suppliers who have public commitments to sourcing and/or traceable to specific plantations, in accordance with the company’s sustainable natural rubber policy.

In January this year, Apollo Tyres became the first Indian auto company to get ISO 20400 certification for sustainable proccurement

These tyres will now undergo extensive road evaluation under typical operating conditions. This development is aligned with the sustainability journey of Apollo Tyres and the goal of achieving the 40 peercent sustainable material target by 2030, and of being carbon neutral by 2050. Our team continues to showcase innovation and commitment to building a sustainable future.”

These high-performance Electric Passenger Vehicle tyres (Apollo Amperion) and ultra-high performance (Apollo Aspire 4G+) passenger vehicle tyres were manufactured at Apollo Tyres’ Andhra Pradesh plant, which is the company’s latest and most modern manufacturing facility.
