COMPANY OVERVIEW What We Do

Liberty Tire Recycling | 2022 Environmental, Social & Governance Report 6 COMPANY OVERVIEW Processing for Beneficial Reuse Tires are then ground through cryogenic or ambient methods into smaller particles for a variety of end markets. That material is then distributed to customers globally through our transportation network. Creating Recycled Products Not only is natural rubber a limited resource, it contributes to deforestation, biodiversity loss and more. Recycled rubber products extend the useful life of tires and have a smaller carbon footprint than virgin alternatives. We recycle and repurpose tires into a variety of innovative products, including mulch, landscape edging, patio pavers, consumer products and more. Retail and Manufacturing Locations Achieving Circularity While there is still work to do in the industry to achieve full circularity, many of the products that we manufacture go back on the shelves of our retailers, creating a closed loop for product use. Collections Our fleet of more than 400 vehicles collect tires from more than 36,000 locations annually. In addition, tires may be dropped off at our locations for recycling. Gate Drop-Offs Route Collection Drop and Hook Sorting Once tires are received in our facilities, they go through a multi-point inspection. Tires with useful treadlife are segmented and go back into circulation as used tires. Tires that are eligible for recycling move on to our processing lines and those that aren’t may be sent to disposal.

Liberty Tire Recycling | 2022 Environmental, Social & Governance Report 10 OUR APPROACH TO SUSTAINABILITY Sustainability at Liberty Tire is woven into our business model of keeping end-of-life tires out of landfills and recycling them into new products. We are the market leader in tire recycling management, annually collecting more than 195 million tires, or 4.3 billion pounds of rubber, and transforming those tires into a variety of recycled products. When we began our sustainability journey, we assembled an ESG Task Force comprised of nine employees from cross-functional areas led by the Senior Vice President of Sustainability to create our initial ESG roadmap. As our strategy matures and we continue to integrate ESG considerations into our business model, we have shifted the responsibility for driving our ESG priorities to our Senior Management team. The Senior Vice President of Sustainability reports ongoing activity and progress to the Executive Team bi-weekly and to the full Board of Directors on a quarterly basis. The Board also conducts a comprehensive review of our sustainability performance annually. In 2021, we conducted our first sustainability materiality assessment. We requested feedback from our internal and external stakeholders, including investors, employees, customers, industry NGO’s and business leaders, to identify our most material sustainability topics given our current business operations. The resulting materiality assessment prioritized areas of focus according to the greatest impact on our business and our stakeholders. This year saw the continued evolution of our sustainability efforts. We adopted a company-wide ESG Policy that formally states our commitment to environmental, social, and governance efforts at Liberty Tire. The policy details our approach and identifies existing policies that are relevant to our environmental, social, and governance material topics.

Liberty Tire Recycling | 2022 Environmental, Social & Governance Report 12 OUR APPROACH TO SUSTAINABILITY At Liberty Tire, sustainability is integrated into our overall business strategy and our day-to-day decision-making. We understand that our company becomes more financially successful as we become more environmentally sustainable. In support of our sustainability goals, every dollar of free cash flow is reinvested into the business to continue improving our operations, collecting more tires, and moving tire-derived material to its highest and best use. During 2022, Liberty Tire made substantial improvements to our business by implementing various infrastructure and procedural enhancements, with the goal of moving rubber up the value chain. ` Process improvements in our Texas locations allowed us to increase the yield of used tires that were eligible for the used tire market. The most sustainable approach is to utilize these tires through their complete lifespan, rather than prematurely initiating the recycling process. ` The acquisition of Rubberecycle in Lakewood, New Jersey, brought several significant advantages to our overall business. The strategic location allowed us to transport tires, previously destined for West Haven, Connecticut, to a facility much closer to the tire collections, effectively reducing miles driven during transportation. By moving the manufacturing of several Rubberecycle products to our Godfrey, Illinois facility, we successfully eliminated the need for overseas production. This consolidation enabled us to optimize production in Godfrey, eliminate freight movements, and foster the advancement of more material up the value chain in the U.S. market, contributing to improved operational efficiency and sustainability in our business practices. ` Liberty Tire is committed to advancing its operations. Recently, we implemented automated packaging and palletizing systems in select molded goods and rubber mulch production facilities. These automation initiatives were specifically designed to replace manual and repetitive processes, and resulted in reduced employee injuries, improved production rates, and more packaging uniformity. This uniformity not only minimizes storage and transportation damage but enhances retail product merchandising for our retail partners. ` Our processing line for the SmartMIX™ asphalt solution was moved from an external location to our Jackson, Georgia facility. This eliminated the need for additional transportation and now enables us to process and produce the product in the same location. As these examples demonstrate, sustainability is ingrained in our business strategy, and we believe that what is good for the planet and good for our employees is good for our business.

Liberty Tire Recycling | 2022 Environmental, Social & Governance Report 13 ZERO WASTE GOAL Liberty Tire aspires to have 100% of tires we collect enter end use markets by 2030.” Liberty Tire takes pride in our efforts to transform endof-life tires into usable products, realizing the significant advantages of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and diverting these tires away from landfills. In 2021, members of the U.S. Tire Manufacturing Association (USTMA) reported a utilization rate of 71% for end-of-life tires, with the balance being sent to landfills. Many factors contribute to the inability to recycle all tires, such as limited markets for recycled products due to geographical constraints, low consumer demand, or a scarcity of applications for the recycled material. Liberty Tire achieved an industry-leading 74.4% utilization rate in 2022. While we have made great progress thus far, we acknowledge there is much work ahead to achieve our zero waste goal of 100% utilization rate from the end-of-life tires we collect by 2030. Our aim is to ensure that every tire we collect will be reused, repurposed, or recycled, with no tires or tire components ending up in landfills. While our goals are ambitious, it is noteworthy that, according to the USTMA, only batteries and cardboard are recycled at higher rates than endof-life tires. End-of-life tires continue to find end uses at a higher rate than glass, plastic, aluminum, metal, and paper. Liberty Tire has set a more ambitious, longer-term goal that all end-of-life tire material will be utilized in low, or no carbon closed loop applications by the year 2050. At present, a portion of our end-of-life tire material is consumed as tire-derived fuel by our customers. Although tire-derived fuel serves as an alternative to conventional fossil fuels like coal, it is not the highest and best use for those tires. This goal represents a challenge for us to elevate our material up the value chain, aligning with our commitment to sustainability and reducing carbon emissions. The goals we have set at Liberty Tire are bold and transformative, and achieving them will require the collective efforts of every individual within our organization. As we move forward, there are numerous avenues to explore on our path to success. Our strategy to attain zero waste includes: Developing new markets Developing new products Collaborating with industry partners Piloting innovative products and processes Our strategy to reach these zero waste goals can be found throughout this report. Attaining these goals is our highest priority and is the basis of everything we do.

Liberty Tire Recycling | 2022 Environmental, Social & Governance Report 14 ADVANCING SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTS Our Purpose is to Repurpose To achieve our zero waste goal by 2030, Liberty Tire must not only manage waste throughout our operations but find beneficial reuse for 100% of the tires we collect including the rubber, steel, and fiber. Our focus lies in developing innovative products and fostering partnerships across diverse industries. At present, our tire recycling efforts enable us to repurpose tires into a wide range of products, including athletic surfaces, pavement applications, as well as landscape mulch and playgrounds. Moreover, tire rubber can be found in outdoor pavers, front door welcome mats, gaskets and hoses, or even transformed back into new tires. From crumb rubber that is used as a raw material in more technical industrial applications to tire derived fuel or rubberized asphalt, we create safe and useful products that drive a greener tomorrow. Paving the Way with New Asphalt Technology In 2022, Liberty Tire participated in an unprecedented project to evaluate the potential to use fibers derived from the tire recycling process in asphalt technology. This project tested a new asphalt technology that incorporates the tire fibers into our proprietary SmartMIX™ product. SmartMIX™ is a dry mix asphalt technology with well-known benefits that include 15% per ton cost reduction, an additional 3 to 5 years on an asphalt pavement’s lifecycle, more crack resistant, and easier and less expensive to install. Liberty Tire teamed up with Michigan Technological University and Ace-Saginaw Paving in St. Clair County, Michigan in September 2022 to test the performance of the addition of the recycled tire fiber to the SmartMIX™ product. The trial proved successful and resulted in the tire fiber and SmartMIX™ combination providing an overall 43% improvement in strengthening and reinforcing the mix against cracking. It was the first-of-its-kind project to beneficially reuse the tire fiber that was separated from passenger tire rubber during the granulating and tire recycling process. This project used rubber from 1,715 scrap tires and fiber collected from 2,024 scrap tires. 43% improvement in strengthening asphalt and reducing cracking when tire fiber and SmartMIX™ are combined

Liberty Tire Recycling | 2022 Environmental, Social & Governance Report 21 ACCELERATING ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP Reclaiming, recycling, reusing, and repurposing is just the start of our efforts to accelerate environmental stewardship. Understanding the immediate climate crisis our world faces, reducing greenhouse gas emissions is also one of our top priorities. In 2020 and 2021, we measured our carbon footprint and handprint to better understand our total impact on the environment. Our handprint shows how beneficial the use of recycled products is when compared to the virgin alternatives of these products and how much these products can impact greenhouse gas emissions reductions. We have identified opportunities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by implementing software to optimize collection routes and ensure trucks are filled to capacity at the end of each route. This has already resulted in a lowered carbon impact during tire collection. Building on this progress, we are actively working to develop a comprehensive strategy and subsequent initiatives to further decrease our carbon footprint. In late 2022, in addition to our zero waste goals, we set the two additional goals. We look forward to reporting our progress in our future ESG reports. Reduce Energy Intensity by 25% by 2032 4 We will accomplish this goal by identifying opportunities in production efficiencies, compressed air management, peak demand, power factor, and LED lighting upgrades. Improve Fleet Efficiency by 30% by 2032 4 We will reach this goal through a variety of initiatives in the areas of alternative fuels, DOT compliance, route optimization, fuel efficiency, idle time reductions, and driver training. 4.

Supporting Our Partners’ Emissions Goals As a downstream supplier for many large tire retailers’ and manufacturers’ waste, Liberty Tire is an important part of their sustainability initiatives. Liberty Tire’s operations span the U.S. and Canada, allowing us to support our partners as they pursue their own waste reduction and greenhouse gas emissions goals. We collect end-of-life tires from manufacturers and retailers and use the components to create new products. As part of our commitment to transparency, we maintain detailed data on the number of tires collected from each company and the output of recycled products entering reuse markets. This information is shared with our partners, who trust us to leverage our national footprint to expertly manage their waste stream and deliver valuable data and metrics for their reporting needs. Reduced fleet mileage by over 161,000 miles as well as improved on-time service levels by 5% through the utilization of route optimization software

Liberty Tire Recycling | 2022 Environmental, Social & Governance Report 23 ACCELERATING ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP Carbon Emissions To better understand the baseline from which to measure improvement in our energy efficiency, Liberty Tire calculates our annual carbon footprint and handprint. In prior years, our carbon footprint has been focused on the total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions generated from our operations from the moment a truck leaves our facility to collect used tires to the moment we deliver our end product to a customer. In 2022, we calculated additional upstream and downstream emissions from our value chain. Greenhouse gas emissions are categorized into Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions. Scope 1 emissions are the greenhouse gases emitted from our truck fleet and from our natural gas usage. Scope 2 emissions are calculated from the electricity purchased to run our facilities. The calculation of our Scope 3 emissions includes purchased goods and services, capital goods, fuel and energy-related activities, upstream transportation, generated waste, downstream product transportation, processing and end-of-life treatment of sold products, and employee business travel and commuting. To more thoroughly and accurately track our Scope 3 emissions, in 2022, we added eight more categories to our Scope 3 data collection. As Liberty Tire continues to grow organically and by acquisition, our Scope 1, 2, and 3 greenhouse gas emissions have increased from 2020 to 2022 due to additional locations, improved integrity of our data and expanded reporting of our Scope 3 emissions. Category 11 of our Scope 3 emissions (Use of Sold Products) is comprised of the greenhouse gases emitted when our tire-derived fuel (TDF) is combusted by our customers. The cement industry burns scrap tires as fuel in kilns used to make clinker—a primary component of portland cement. The pulp and paper industry uses tire-derived fuel in their boilers which are used to supply energy for making paper. While this value is higher than our other categories, the value would be 9.6% higher if coal was burned instead of the tire-derived fuel. Additionally, emissions associated with mining coal are over 14 times higher than the production of tire-derived fuel from waste tires. The use of TDF also results in lower nitric oxide emissions when compared to many U.S. coals, particularly the high-sulfur coals. Given these factors, tire-derived fuel is a beneficial waste product alternative to mining and burning traditional fossil fuels like coal.

Liberty Tire Recycling | 2022 Environmental, Social & Governance Report 25 ACCELERATING ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP Longevity of rubber mulch Liberty Tire’s rubber mulch products are used in playground and landscaping applications as an alternative to wood mulch solutions. Although the production of rubber mulch emits 1.7x the greenhouse gases of wood mulch, it lasts approximately 12 years after initial application which is much longer than the annual reapplication of wood mulch that is necessary. Avoided emissions: 134,786 metric tons of CO2-e (over 10 yrs) Improving asphalt products Crumb rubber is added to traditional asphalt mixes to create a better product. Rubberized asphalt adds 3-5 years to an asphalt pavement’s lifecycle as well as being more resistant to cracking and easier and less expensive to install. Avoided emissions: 59,992 metric tons of CO2-e Using rubber for mats vs. virgin materials Liberty Tire’s largest molded product segment by annual volume is in flooring and rubber mats for industries like oil and gas, agriculture, commercial building, gyms and even consumer households. For this product line, Liberty Tire prepares tire crumb to be used as feedstock, which is shipped to manufacturers who make the end product. Avoided emissions: 205,971 metric tons of CO2-e Recovering steel wire from tires Steel wire is removed from the end-of-life tires after shredding. This recovered wire is remelted in steel furnaces to make sheet and long steel products. As a result of Liberty Tire’s recycling efforts, the use of coal, petroleum coke, and other raw materials for the production of steel is reduced. Avoided emissions: 206,134 metric tons of CO2-e Reselling used tires When a consumer replaces one bad tire, they often choose to replace all the tires on the vehicle for consistency, regardless of the condition of the remaining tires. Rather than recycling and processing the tires that are still in good condition, we sell them to customers in the used tire market. Avoided emissions: 167,664 metric tons of CO2-e Replacing fossil fuels with Tire-Derived Fuel (TDF) Due to its high heat output, tire-derived fuel has the ability to replace other fuels in co-fired boilers in pulp and paper mills, cement kilns, and to power electricity plants. This enables these boilers and kilns to use less overall fuel; therefore, avoiding the generation of additional greenhouse gas emissions. Using end-oflife tires instead of traditional fossil fuels reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 20-30% for each ton of coal burned. Avoided emissions: 123,770 metric tons of CO2-e Environmental Benefits to Using Liberty Tire’s Products

Liberty Tire Recycling | 2022 Environmental, Social & Governance Report 27 ACCELERATING ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP Alternative Fuels Liberty Tire is always looking for opportunities to improve fuel efficiency and maximize carbon reduction of our fleet of vehicles. In 2022, our Delta, British Columbia facility took the pioneering step of testing the first EV Peterbilt 579 on the open road in Canada. While the vehicle showcased numerous benefits, including zero emissions, swift acceleration, and safety features like enhanced comfort, minimal noise, and shock-free operation, its range and usage time before requiring a charge made it unviable for our travel distances. We eagerly anticipate adopting electric vehicles once technology evolves to meet our business needs. Until then, we remain committed to route optimization and continuously exploring emerging technologies as they become feasible alternatives.

ADAPT’s platform ingests and analyzes disparate telematics data for automating accurate greenhouse gas reporting. This information is used both internally and externally to direct business strategies and to ensure reporting compliance. For example, ADAPT’s ‘Hotspot’ function provides insights on reducing emissions while saving operational cost, supporting Liberty Tire’s sustainability objectives. This comprehensive approach to emissions tracking sets the foundation for Liberty Tire to set realistic decarbonization goals and effectively monitor our progress.

Liberty Tire Recycling | 2022 Environmental, Social & Governance Report 29 ACCELERATING ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP Water Management Liberty Tire is exploring creative ways to conserve water usage at our facilities. Our water conservation measures are specifically tailored to suit the distinct operations of each of our facilities. At some locations where it is feasible, rain and snow runoff is collected and stored to be used onsite for our shredding operation and firefighting spray systems. At another facility, we recycle our captured water. We have a gutter system around our grading and shredding areas to capture water from tires that are collected and water coming out of our shredders. We use sump pumps to collect the water in 100-gallon containers which we run through filters and extract uncontaminated water (approximately 50%). We then use the clean water for spraying and cooling our shredder blades. Depending on the season, this can range from 100+ gallons in our drier seasons to as much as 400 gallons per day. We understand the importance of having a comprehensive understanding of our water usage so that we can identify areas for improvement. In 2023, Liberty Tire will initiate a water use inventory and evaluate the water management systems at all of our facilities for areas of opportunity.
