operational impacts

As part of Goodyear’s commitment to corporate responsibility, we continuously work to reduce our operational impact.

We continuously work to reduce our operational impact. We believe we have the ability to further reduce energy consumption, emissions, water and waste within our operations, not only to meet and exceed environmental regulations, but also to help improve the environment, our reputation as a good corporate citizen and our bottom line.

Goodyear’s Senior VP Global Operations and Technology oversees the teams that implement our robust approach to operational environmental impacts. This includes our network of global, regional and facility leaders in EHS, Sustainability, Engineering and Procurement. Our EHS Policy is our guiding principle for all levels of management, associates and contractors to continuously improve the safety and health of our workplaces and protect the environment.

We carefully monitor our energy, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and water use; set company-wide and facility-specific goals to reduce our operational impacts; and continue to comply with all applicable laws and regulations. In 2019, through the cross-functional efforts of the Engineering, Procurement, and Sustainability teams, Goodyear fully integrated energy management into the PO operating system, which embraces a zero-loss mindset and is active in 30 of our plants. This integration included aligning energy management with several of the key pillars of PO, such as focused improvement, daily equipment care, reliability excellence, and early equipment management.
