Omni United Researches the Carbon Footprint of Tiremaking

Omni United announced it has hired Ernst & Young to assess the greenhouse gas impact of its products and to advise the tiremaker on implementing initiatives to reduce and/or offset its carbon footprint.
“We have chosen Ernst & Young to conduct this study as it is one of the leading global consulting firms specializing in climate change and sustainability services,” said G.S.

A report from the three-month initial study is due to be released in last quarter of 2012. Following this study, Omni United said it plans to “actively engage all dimensions of its business in building sustainable business practices.”
“Our aim is to become the first tire company to have all of our products recycled at the end of their lifespan,” Sareen said. The tiremaker added it aims to become a “carbon-neutral” company.
