A tire factory in the Dominican Republic that was once the symbol of global environmental justice is becoming a symbol of a climate justice movement that is changing the face of the world.
A coalition of environmental organizations, labor unions and the tire industry is trying to open a tire manufacturing facility on the site of the former tire plant, in the village of Riquí, in central Dominican Republic, where the company built a tire factory, according to a report from The Washington Times.
The Dominican Republic has been one of the main hubs of the global climate movement, with tire makers and tire makers of all kinds pledging to cut emissions and make environmentally friendly tires.
The tire factory was built to produce environmentally friendly rims and tires.
But a lack of environmental oversight and high production costs have led to a significant amount of pollution, according a study by the International Institute for Sustainable Development, a U.N. agency.
The Riquijo Tire Plant in Riquiet was once known as a tire manufacturer in the Riquiù Province, which has a high concentration of the country’s largest population of expatriate workers, the Times reported.
It is now a tire plant that is primarily for sale, the newspaper said.
The new tire factory is slated to open in late 2021, the report said.
In 2014, the United States, China and many other countries pledged to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent by 2050, with China expected to lead the way.
The U.S. government has also pledged to reduce carbon emissions from transportation by 30 percent from 2005 levels by 2030.
