The Bridgestone Group aims to continue existing in harmony with nature by maximizing its contribution to biodiversity (ecosystems, species and genetic diversity) while minimizing the impact of its business activities on biodiversity.
The Group's activities are based on the long-term goal adopted at the 2010 Tenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP10) to the Convention on Biological Diversity, understanding the relationship between business activities and biodiversity and to identify priority issues to be addressed. The concept of being in harmony with nature, which is set forth in the Group’s long-term environmental vision targeting 2050 and beyond, refers to the mindset of minimizing the impact of business activities on biodiversity while offsetting losses to the ecosystem as a whole by restoring biodiversity and conducting other contributing activities. The Group is promoting initiatives to achieve being in harmony with nature throughout its business activities.
