The strategy is aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals such as decent work and economic growth, industry, innovation and infrastructure, responsible consumption and production, climate action and partnerships for the goals.
The plan concentrates of five priorities which are:
- Increase used tyre recovery and end markets.
- Continue to improve data and information on all used tyre fates, both in Australia and overseas.
- Growth in the number of organisations contributing to and participating in the Tyre Stewardship Scheme.
- TSA is a trusted entity, building relationships and value for its stakeholders.
- TSA is a significant contributor to the global circular economy for end-of-life tyres.
These goals relate to TSA’s purpose, which is to drive sustainable outcomes for end of life tyres.
The national Tyre Product Stewardship Scheme will continue to increase resource recovery and minimise the environmental and human health risks associated with used tyres in Australia while also developing Australia’s tyre recycling industry and markets for dire derived products.
Tyre Stewardship’s vision as set out in the plan is to help create a circular economy for end of life tyres which contributes to a sustainable society.
Road production and infrastructure or engineering projects are flagged in the plan as areas of opportunity for repurposed end-of-life tyres.
TSA will look, over the next three years, to promote increase local use of Australian end of life tyres in productive ways by significantly investing in market development to drive high volume uses of tyre derived products and research into new innovations.
Improving information on all used tyres in Australia and overseas is another strategic goal outlined in the plan.
The organisation will then look to grow the participation in its scheme and build trusted relationships with key stakeholders.
TSA recognises that building a circular economy for tyres will require collaboration and cooperation globally and its final goal, highlighted in the plan, is to become a significant contributor to the global circular economy for end of life tyres.
