Bridgestone European facilities powered by electricity from 100% renewable sources

Bridgestone has announced that 100% of electricity at a number of its European sites now comes from renewable sources, up from 90% in March 2020.

The company’s European R&D center and proving ground in Rome, Italy; the textile plant in Usansolo, Spain; and the PCT plant in Lanklaar and EMIA headquarters in Brussels, both in Belgium, now consume only 100% renewable energy.

This is a huge step toward meeting the targets laid out in the Paris Climate Agreement, and Bridgestone’s own commitment to becoming a carbon-neutral company by 2050. The company says it has been investing to reduce CO2  emissions across product lifecycles and its entire value chain.

“Reducing our CO emissions is a key pillar of our long-term sustainability vision, which is why I can’t emphasize enough the significance of this milestone,” commented Bridgestone EMIA CTO and COO, Emilio Tiberio. “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.”
