100% Of Electricity Consumed In Bridgestone’s European Locations Now Comes From Renewable Sources


Bridgestone, a provider of sustainable mobility and advanced solutions, has today
announced that all of its European tyre plants, European R&D Centre and
Proving Ground in Rome, Italy, PCT plant in Lanklaar, Belgium, textile plant in
Usansolo, Spain, and Bridgestone EMIA headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, are
now powered by electricity from 100 per cent renewable sources.

announcement marks major progress against the company's ambition to reduce the
environmental impact of its operations: Bridgestone Corporation is committed to
the Paris Agreement and achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. Bridgestone, which
announced in March 2020 that 90 per cent of electricity consumed in its
European plants came from renewable resources, has been investing to reduce CO2
emissions across the lifecycle of its products and entire value chain.

Commenting on
this announcement was Bridgestone EMIA CTO & COO, Emilio Tiberio: “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. It's inspiring to see how far we've come in a relatively short
chapter of Bridgestone's long history. 100 per cent 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
