The Bridgestone Group has set the Long-term Environmental Vision of reducing its overall CO2 emissions by at least 50%. This vision is based on the objective of reducing global greenhouse gas emissions at least by 50% by 2050, consistent with the goal agreed on by the leaders of G8 countries during the G8 Hokkaido Toyako Summit held in July 2008. This objective also was shared at the Major Economies Meeting on Energy Security and Climate Change held the same year.
Difference in CO2 Emissions from Operations and Products’ After-use and Contribution to CO2 reduction at the Usage Stage
The Bridgestone Group is working to achieve its mid-term targets reduce the volume of CO2 emissions over the entire lifecycle of a tire. Considering the value when CO2 emissions from operations and products’ after-use are offset by contribution of CO2 reduction at usage stage*1, the reduction in 2017 was 86％(compared to 2005). We are continuing activities with a dual approach aimed at achieving that contribution to CO2 reduction during use exceeds CO2 emissions from our operations and products’ after-use by 2020.
