Nokian Tyres is known as a pioneer in environmental issues. This goes for the entire life cycle of a tyre. As for production, this means such measures as using only purified oils and utilising raw materials as efficiently as possible. Furthermore, we make sure the production noise does not harm the surrounding areas, and no toxic chemicals are used in the manufacture processes. Respect for the environment is part of our product development philosophy. We aim to pay increasing attention to environmental issues in the design of new products, starting from ethical raw material acquisition all the way to a well-functioning recycling system. Nokian Tyres is the world’s first tyre manufacturer to have fully eliminated high-aromatic (HA) oils in its production in 2005.
