Colombia for its turn, have created recently a Carbon Taxation system that was the genesis for a national carbon credit market with great potential as a tool to promote low-carbon opportunities in the agricultural sector, being Natural Rubber an excellent choice.

Rubber Recycling Symposium: Early Registration Ends Today: Register Now!

Historically proven to be a great success, our biennial Rubber Recycling Symposium draws in an international audience of hundreds, including key players in the industry. With thought-provoking panels and ample networking opportunities, the Rubber Recycling Symposium provides a hub where thought leaders can interact and work towards the cooperative development of an environmentally sustainable industry.

Our theme for this year’s Symposium “Taking Sustainability to the Next Level” starts with the premise that we all must all play our part in building a sustainable world for our children’s children and beyond. But examining the idea closer to home, what does “taking sustainability to the next level” actually mean for the tire and rubber industry? Reusing goods and materials over and over to create a virtuous circular economy? Certainly. Creating a market environment that encourages and sustains products without the need for ongoing financial incentives? Absolutely. Producing more goods with fewer and fewer non-renewable inputs? Yes. How about producing fewer goods and doing more with less? Why not?

This year’s Symposium will address all these differing aspects of sustainability and, we hope, demonstrate that the tire and rubber industry continues to be a leader in understanding and being responsive to our environmental imperatives.
