Message from the CEO
When we look back at 2021, the world was still coming to terms with a new way of life due to the pandemic. Yet, amidst all the uncertainties, we at Yokohama Off-Highway Tires took a more ambitious and strategic approach towards CSR with the objective of empowering communities and creating long term financial, social, and environmental impacts.
During 2021, we continued to prioritize the safety and well-being of our employees and their families - from vaccination drives to more comprehensive medical insurance plans. Our teams rallied to support local communities through financial donations and also provided five hundred ration and hygiene kits. In Tirunelveli, we set up a 75- bed capacity Community Care Centre with emergency and pandemic management services to meet the needs of the nearby villages during the pandemic.
I am also happy to share that after the successful completion of Phase-I of the Rainwater Harvesting Project in Tirunelveli, where we created storage capacity for thirty-one million liters of water for the local communities and achieved a significant increase of 21.5 feet in ground water levels in the region, we have now moved to next phase. In Phase-II, we aim to further increase the ground water levels, and build village level committees that sustain the developed water resources and improve agricultural productivity.
We also launched a first of its kind Skill Development Centre (SDC) in Dahej in line with the “Skill India Mission.” The SDC aims to train around 240 youths annually in tire manufacturing skills and makes them job-ready for a career in the tire industry. Furthermore, combining the objectives of the SDC with our women empowerment initiatives, we have begun training ninety-four women candidates through a fully sponsored residential program at the SDC.
As a responsible tire manufacturer, we have initiated a Road Safety Project where we will install crash barriers made with end-of-life tires at accident-prone areas on identified highways. This will reduce our carbon footprint and save lives.
I strongly believe that as organizations grow, so should their positive impact on the society and environment. At Yokohama Off-Highway Tires, we have a deep-rooted commitment to run a responsible business and I would like to thank each one of you for your valuable support.
