Title partner Goodyear receives FIA’s highest level environmental accreditation

Goodyear Racing EMEA has been recognised with the highest possible score in the FIA’s Environmental Accreditation programme, underlining the tyre manufacturer’s commitment to sustainability in both its car and truck racing activities.

Recognised for its long-term sustainability plans and clear strategies towards mitigating the impact of global motorsport operations, Goodyear is the first ACO tyre partner to achieve the top three-star rating in the FIA Environmental Accreditation framework. The certification covers the motorsport programmes run by Goodyear Racing EMEA, including the brand’s presence in the FIA World Endurance Championship, 24 Hours of Le Mans and European Le Mans Series, as well as the Goodyear FIA European Truck Racing Championship.

Every Goodyear racing tyre for these championships is manufactured in Goodyear’s state-of-the-art facilities in Hanau, Germany, and Colmar-Berg, Luxembourg, which have both received ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 certification. The Hanau facility is also ISCC certified since January 2024. In addition, both facilities operate with 100% renewable electricity, as do all  Goodyear EMEA manufacturing facilities. Goodyear has a long-term goal of transforming its manufacturing operations and processes to all renewable energy by 2040.

In the Goodyear FIA ETRC, the top tier of truck racing, Goodyear utilises retreading, in a similar practice to that used in daily commercial vehicle fleet operations. After the race, the used racing tyres are retreaded to give them a renewed purpose for transportation companies, reducing the overall waste and prolonging the tyre’s lifespan after they become no longer suitable for racing.

This recognition underscores Goodyear's unwavering commitment to sustainability and reflects their continuous efforts to lead the industry with environmentally responsible practices.
