In its recent article, Tyre Stewardship Australia (TSA) reports that it has mapped its 2020-2023 strategy against the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). TSA’s mission to ensure the sustainable management, recycling and productive use of end of life tyres is now underpinned by 5 of these SDGs:

  1. SDG #8 – Decent work and economic growth
  2. SDG #9 – Industry, innovation and infrastructure
  3. SDG #12 – Responsible consumption and production
  4. SDG # 13 – Climate action
  5. SDG #17 – Partnerships for the goals

All 17 Sustainable Development Goals can be found here:

TSA reports that the SDGs have contributed to the development of TSA’s Strategic Plan, which concentrates on five priorities.

TSA’s 5 strategic goals are:

  1. Increase used tyre recovery and end markets.
  2. Continue to improve data and information on all used tyre fates, both in Australia and overseas.
  3. Growth in the number of organisations contributing to and participating in the Tyre Stewardship Scheme.
  4. TSA is a trusted entity, building relationships and value for its stakeholders.
  5. TSA is a significant contributor to the global circular economy for end-of-life tyres.
