Nokian Tyres again included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index – Among the most sustainable listed companies in Europe
Nokian Tyres plc Press Release December 11, 2023, at 11:00 a.m. EET
Nokian Tyres has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Europe Index, which means that the company is among the most sustainable listed companies in Europe.
“For Nokian Tyres, sustainability is concrete actions and innovations that, in the best case, spur the whole industry to become more sustainable. For example, Nokian Tyres is currently building the first zero CO2 emission factory in the tire industry in Romania, and we recently joined the Polestar 0 project that aims for creating the first carbon neutral car in the world,” says Teppo Huovila, Vice President, Quality, Sustainability and Supply operations business development at Nokian Tyres.
Nokian Tyres’ key sustainability targets include reducing CO2 emissions in line with the company’s four science-based targets, increasing the share of either recycled or renewable raw materials in tires, securing safer and better work and improving the sustainability of the supply chain.
During 2023 Nokian Tyres reached one of its key emissions reduction targets seven years ahead of schedule. One of the company’s science-based greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets was to cut its tire factories’ direct CO2 emissions by 52% per production ton by 2030 compared to the emissions level in 2015, but this target has already been achieved.
List of Europe’s most sustainable companies is based on a comprehensive assessment
The Dow Jones Sustainability Indices are comprised of corporate leaders in sustainability as identified by S&P Global. Only five companies were selected in the Dow Jones Sustainability Europe Index from the industry sectors Automobiles and Automotive components.
The selection was based on S&P Global’s Corporate Sustainability Assessment 2023, in which Nokian Tyres scored 70 points out of 100. The comprehensive assessment focuses on criteria that are both industry-specific and financially material. The assessment is highly valued by investors.
Over 3,500 companies worldwide were included in S&P Global’s assessment for inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices. The assessment was mainly based on the companies’ performance in 2022.
