Tire Industry Project

Established in January 2006, the goal of the Tire Industry Project (TIP) is to identify and address the potential health and environmental impacts of materials associated with tire making and use. This project is chaired by the three largest tire manufacturers – Bridgestone (Japan), Goodyear (US) and Michelin (France) – and includes a total of eleven companies representing approximately 70% of the world’s tire manufacturing capacity.
