" We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our children."

Importance of environment
In 2014, during the climate conference (COP20) in Lima (Peru), the 195 State members of the United Nations decided to draw a roadmap to limit the effects of global warming. A global temperature increase of less than 2℃ by the year 2100 was fixed.

We have all witnessed the effects of global warming from  hurricanes, floodings, droughts, to warm winters, scorching summers or melting icebergs… Climate change impacts human beings and the wildlife.

There is no planet B. We have to act together for the sake of the future of our children.
At Hankook TRS we understand the gravity of the situation and we are proud to be part of Korea’s efforts towards a greener world. We believe that by making the environment cleaner, we will contribute to the well being and happiness of all living beings.  
We are part of the circular economy. Using waste rubber as an alternative to virgin rubber reduces green gas emissions (manufacturing virgin rubber requires important quantities of oil). We minimizes waste landfills by transforming a waste product into a new commodity from which steel, nylon and rubber can be reused.
We recycle
A well thought recycling program at work encourages employees to be part of the global effort towards a greener planet.
As a leader in the Korean green circular economy, Hankook TRS employees happily take part in the company recycling program.

Different bins are available to sort out the trashes, from PET bottles, cans, paper and cartons. Employees are encourage to conserve resources and use environmental friendly alternatives such as mugs and glasses instead of disposable paper cups.

We are always looking for new ways to have a positive impact on the environment and we hope that you will join us in this green initiative.
