Bridgestone’s European Locations Now Fully Powered By Renewable Sources

Bridgestone Corporation recently announced that all of its European facilities are now powered by 100% renewable energy—and not just its tyre manufacturing plants. This announcement also includes the firm’s European R&D Centre and Proving Ground in Rome, as well as its PCT plant in Lanklaar, Belgium; a textile plant in Usansolo, Spain; and Bridgestone’s EMIA (Europe, Russia, Middle East, India, Africa) headquarters in Brussels. The announcement represents a major milestone on the way to Bridgestone’s goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050.

Reducing Climate Change

Bridgestone made an ambitious commitment to reduce the environmental impact of its operations in alignment with the Paris Agreement, an international initiative of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change with 191 of 196 countries signing on to the agreement. In order to reach its 2050 goal, Bridgestone has made considerable investments to reduce carbon dioxide emissions across the lifecycle of its products and value chain.

“More To Achieve”

“Reducing our CO2 emissions is a key pillar of our long-term sustainability vision, which is why I can’t emphasise enough the significance of this milestone,” says Bridgestone EMIA CTO & COO, Emilio Tiberio. “It’s inspiring to see how far we’ve come in a relatively short chapter of Bridgestone’s long history. One hundred percent was the goal for a long time, but there’s so much more to achieve in emissions reduction and beyond. Let’s use this achievement as inspiration to go out and deliver yet again.”
