Driving the drive. TiAuto takes real action to help the environment


TiAuto, the holding company of South Africa’s favourite Automotive Fitment centre brands Tiger Wheel & Tyre, Tyres & More, Treads Unlimited and many more, released measurable results today that show how serious the organisation is about reducing its carbon footprint.

Alex Taplin, CEO of TiAuto Investments is a fervent believer. “One of the cornerstones of our business is a commitment to helping our planet. We know that we need to act now. We need to change old habits and form new ones if we want to leave a healthy world to our future generations.

“As a leader in the motor industry, we have an even greater responsibility to minimise our impact on the planet.”

The business’s commitment to renewable energy has delivered substantial progress, and with more to come. Sixteen of the Group’s retail stores have completed Phase 1 to convert to solar power. Phase 2 is now well-underway, with the goal of having all stores running on solar energy within the next three years.

Initial results of the move to solar power are impressive. The Group has so far produced an annualised 498 MWh of clean energy, reduced CO² emissions by 295 tonnes, and saved and equivalent 42,908 litres of oil.

Recycling has also been a keen focus of TiAuto and has yielded positive results. “We have recycled 40,000kg of lead, over 240,000 tyres, 150 tonnes of wastepaper and packaging and have safely repaired over 2 million alloy wheels to date. We believe in the principles of the 3 R’s – Reuse, Reduce and Recycle said Taplin.

“Of course, contributing positively to the environment is not just the right thing to do, it’s just smart business. We are certainly not finished yet, so watch this space for more exciting announcements in due course”, Taplin finished.
