Giti Tire Highlights EV Innovations and Sustainability at The Tire Cologne 2024

The Tire Cologne 2024 event promises to be a landmark showcase for Giti Tire as it unveils groundbreaking electric vehicle (EV) innovations, new tire launches, and significant sustainability advancements. Set to take place at Koelnmesse in Cologne, Germany from June 4-6, 2024, this event will see Giti Tire focusing on a dual approach to EVs and sustainability, presenting new tires for passenger cars, light trucks, and heavy trucks.

Dual Electric Vehicle Approach and New Tire Launches

On the first day of the event, Giti Tire will introduce its electrification strategy for passenger cars and light trucks with its AdvanzTech EV-ready products. These products are designed to cater to the growing EV Tire market, which demands tires that offer high efficiency and performance.

In addition, Giti Tire will display its GT Radial dual EV strategy, launched in June 2023. This strategy aims to meet the unique requirements of both EV and internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles. The portfolio includes high-performing GT Radial SportActive 2 and FE2 tires, which are engineered to provide superior performance, safety, and durability.

Commitment to Sustainability

Sustainability is a core focus for Giti Tire at The Tire Cologne 2024. The company is committed to reducing its environmental impact, targeting a 30% reduction in Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2030 and achieving Net Zero emissions by 2050. This ambitious goal will be reached through operational optimization, the adoption of advanced technologies, and nature-based solutions.

In recognition of its sustainability efforts, Giti Tire received a Gold rating from Ecovadis in February 2024. Ecovadis is the world’s most trusted business sustainability ratings and ESG compliance solution, placing Giti Tire in the top 5% of global businesses for its sustainable practices. Additionally, Giti Tire will highlight its efforts to comply with the European Union’s Deforestation legislation, ensuring its operations do not contribute to deforestation.
