ETRMA: Presentation of commitment to support EU Green Deal targets
European Tyre & Rubber Manufacturers Association (ETRMA)’s representatives have met EU Commissioner Thierry Breton and his team to present the vision and commitments of future tyre performance targets to deliver on Green Deal objectives on 17 March 2021.
The tyre industry leaders had the opportunity to underline the role of the tyre sector in creating a future with environmentally friendly, safe, efficient and accessible mobility for all. This meeting represents an important step toward the vision the tyre industry intends to support in the direction of delivering on the Green Deal targets.
“Our industry strongly reaffirmed its commitment to go beyond already high performance standards to deliver a safe, climate-neutral and innovative future and looks forward to a conducive regulatory framework to sustain this transition, based on Better Regulation principles”, said Franco Annunziato ETRMA’s President.
ETRMA remains confident that the tyre sector can contribute to the ambitious Green Deal targets, thanks to cooperation with the institutions for an adapted regulatory framework, including clear policies on industrial competitiveness, trade, digitalisation, skills and mobility, moving forward the agenda for a greener and more sustainable Europe.
