An ECO-FRIENDLY PARTNERSHIP
Our key partner Kwik Fit, supplies more than 75% of our car tyres.
In 2021 we extended our relationship in recognition of their commitment to environmental sustainability. Kwik Fit has been recycling our vehicles old and worn tyres, converting them into innovative products, such as playground safety flooring and football pitches. Other recycled materials include carbon black and steel, which are then used in the production of new tyres – this is known as Project TREE.
Through Project TREE Kwik Fit uses blockchain data technology which enables them to track ethically sourced rubber through the supply chain. This will be extended to the fitting of new tyres to all vehicles, as part of our future development plans.
