Contributing to the SDGs to solve global challenges

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) outlines a global agenda to tackle the world’s most pressing social, environmental and economic challenges by 2030 to realize a sustainable society. As society continues to transform itself in pursuit of these common global goals, the Group will further its contributions to society as a sustainable company in line with the SDGs. It will leverage its strengths and competencies to help address the challenges facing the world.

The COVID-19 pandemic exposed the vulnerability of society and forced everyone to reconsider almost every aspect of daily life. The company will also need to be able to respond to unexpected events such as the impact of Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Those reminds people of the challenges to achieving the SDGs, and also represents a turning point in the transformation of society to achieve the SDGs by 2030.

Striving toward living well within planetary boundaries, the Group contributes to the achievement of 13 of the 17 SDGs through all corporate activities and across its entire value chain.

Major contributions of the Bridgestone Group

The SDGs identified by the Group are also aligned with the Tire Sector SDG Roadmap developed by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development’s (WBCSD) Tire Industry Project (TIP). The Roadmap offers a framework for action that outlines impactful pathways for the entire sector to contribute to the ambitions of SDGs. It also aims to guide, inform and support decision-making along the value chain, encourage stakeholder dialogue and inspire action-oriented initiatives among industry peers and beyond. As co-chair of the TIP Working Group, the Group was an active contributor to the development of the Roadmap and participated in the consultation process with a range of global stakeholders from industry associations, NGOs and subject matter experts.
