SDGs become important for rubber industry. For tire and rubber companies, there are a lot of topics to do for Sustainable Development Goals, such as environment issue, labor condition improvement at factory, material recycling and development of environment friendly tire and rubber goods. To use raw materials which can meet SDGs idea is also important. In general traceability of natural rubber materials up to rubber plantation, so far, cannot be confirmed. VRGJAPAN in Vietnam can supply natural rubber CV, L, 3L grade which has description of factory name, plantation, production date, grade on each bale with bar code identification. This rubber is made by the factories and the plantation which are guaranteed for no conflict of SGDs 17 goals. Rubber companies can get closer to SDGs by sourcing this natural rubber which can secure its traceability and no conflict of SDGs. This rubber is now supplied by Shinichi Kato Office Co., Ltd. in Japan.
