Akron, Ohio – Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has reduced its releases into the environment by 82% since 2010, according to the company’s CRS report.
Reporting on the company's performance last year, the Akron-based tire-maker said in 2016 there were three reportable releases to the environment at its manufacturing operations, two of which were “quickly controlled with minimal or no impact to the environment.”
The other was the release of "a small quantity of diluted, biodegradable oil" from Goodyear's tire plant in Luxembourg.
According to Goodyear, the company worked with local environmental authorities to stop the release immediately.
Goodyear did not give further details on the 82% reduction in emissions.
