Our commitment to environmental protection involves the continuous improvement of our quality and environmental management systems in accordance with internationally recognized standards, as well as the continuous improvement of our environmental performance, the responsible management of natural resources and compliance with the laws of the Republic of Croatia.
Gumiimpex-GRP is the first company in Croatia to start recycling of used car tires in 2005. The main goal is to reduce the environmental impact while reusing valuable rubber properties. In doing so, Croatia joins countries that are properly managing tire waste.
We have recognized the potential in renewable energy. In line with our environmental focus, we decided to invest in our own solar power plants. The Trnovec Bartolovecki power plant is also the largest integrated solar power plant in Croatia. Over the 30 years of operation, Gumiimpex-GRP will emit about 16,835 tonnes of less carbon dioxide less than the electricity produced by conventional fossil fuel power plants.
We also retread tires that further contributes to the ecological conservation of natural energy. Approximately 182 liters of oil and its derivatives are consumed to produce one new rubber. Tire retreading requires 35 liters.
Experience has shown us that there is a direct link between business performance and responsible environmental management, responsible in attitude, strategy and action. Let's act responsibly towards our environment!
