Regarding our approach to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), the Bridgestone Group has disclosed detailed information on our corporate website and published the CSR Report and the Environmental Report as tools to facilitate stakeholder understanding of our activities. To communicate the Group’s position on sustainability and related activities more effectively to our stakeholders, starting in 2016, we are integrating the CSR Report and the Environmental Report. Furthermore, this report is a detailed version of the Sustainability Report Digest, which discloses non-financial information, forming a companion to the Annual Report, which conveys mainly financial information.
This report focuses on data and activities for fiscal 2016 (the period from January 1 to December 31, 2016), although it also includes some information applicable to years before and after fiscal 2016.
This report covers the initiatives of the Bridgestone Group, including Bridgestone Corporation and subsidiaries and affiliates around the world. Throughout the text, “Bridgestone” or “the Company” refers to Bridgestone Corporation, while “the Bridgestone Group” or “the Group” refers to all group companies, including subsidiaries and affiliates around the world.
