Continental Slovakia plant gets ISCC Plus sustainability certification

Continental’s plant in Púchov, Slovakia, recently became the company’s first tyre plant also producing truck tyres to receive the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) Plus sustainability certification.

This globally recognised certification confirms the transparency of the traceability of the raw materials used in the production process.

Certification of the raw materials enables Continental to ensure the end-to-end traceability of the materials from sustainable sources.

For the manufacturer, this represents another step on the journey towards 100-per cent sustainable materials in its tyre products by 2050 at the latest.

Púchov is the company’s third ISCC PLUS-certified production site, following the tyre plants in Lousado, Portugal, and Hefei, China.

The Continental truck tyre plant in Púchov, which recently became part of Continental Tires Slovakia, has a long tradition in the rubber industry. Tyre production started here in 1950.

More than 5,000 people work at Continental Tires Slovakia in Púchov. Continental produces tyres for passenger cars, light trucks and as well as trucks. The plant also houses a technology centre, for global tyre research and development, as well as the consolidated unit of ContiTech.
