Bridgestone releases Sustainability Report

Bridgestone Group has published its Sustainability Report 2018-2019 highlighting strong progress toward its global commitment to help achieve a more sustainable society. The Group exceeded its 2020 goal of reducing global water
withdrawal by 35 percent. The company introduced its Global Sustainable Procurement Policy to 98 percent of its Tier 1 major suppliers with the majority of the vendors in the process of completing third-party assessments. Besides, the Group co-launched the Global Platform for Sustainable Natural Rubber, in collaboration with other tyre manufacturers and industry stakeholders, to lead improvements in the socio-economic and environmental performance of the natural rubber value chain.

“Our Mission, ‘Serving Society with Superior Quality,’ addresses Bridgestone’s passion for improving the safety and lives of people everywhere,” said Chairman of the Board, CEO and Representative Executive Officer Masaaki Tsuya. “Our dedication to addressing these societal responsibilities comes to life in the Group’s global corporate social responsibility commitment, Our Way to Serve.”

The Group’s Sustainability Report 2018-2019 addresses its work-to-date in these nine areas and identifies how its efforts are aligned to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. In 2018, the Bridgestone Group was again named to two highly regarded environmental, social and governance indices, the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index and the FTSE4Good Index Series.
