Hankook Tire First to Receive ISCC PLUS Certification

Hankook Tire has become the first in the tire manufacturing industry to obtain the prestigious International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) PLUS mark.

This is in recognition of the company’s sustainability initiatives throughout its entire value chain from sourcing of renewable raw materials to sustainable finished products.

Hankook’s achievement with ISCC PLUS is particularly notable due to the attributes in which the certification is awarded.

ISCC PLUS is an international sustainability certification program for bio-based and circular (recycled) raw materials under the European Renewable Energy Directives (EU RED) that evaluates a company’s sustainability from its raw materials, manufacturing process, and to finished products. …

Hankook Tire’s Geumsan plant received the ISCC PLUS certification through its efforts in tandem with replacing petroleum-based oil with natural oil, as well as adopting renewable bio-based polymers from the petrochemical-based synthetic rubber.
