Big Zero Report 2023

Tyre manufacturer Bridgestone has announced all its European plants are now powered by fully renewable sources.

This includes its European R&D Centre in Italy, its plant and EMIA headquarters in Belgium and its textile plant in Spain.

The commitment follows its previous announcement in March 2020 that 90% of the electricity used by its European plants came from renewables, as well as its pledge to achieve carbon-neutrality by 2050.

The company has been investing to reduce carbon emissions across the lifecycle of its products and the entire value chain.

Chief Operating Officer, Emilio Tiberio, commented: “Reducing our carbon 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% 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.”
