The Bridgestone Group has set a new target in Milestone 2030 to reduce its absolute CO2 emissions (Scope 1 and 2*) by 50%, compared to 2011 by 2030. The Group has set an interim goal of reducing Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 30% or more by 2023, compared to 2011.
In 2022, the Group continued its efforts to improve energy efficiency and introduce renewable energy sources, and achieved a 31.4% reduction compared to 2011.
* The target covers emissions from production sites excluding discontinued operations. Scope 1 covers all direct CO2 emissions by a company (from boilers of manufacturing facilities, etc.) Scope 2 covers indirect energy-related CO2 emissions (from consumption of purchased electricity etc.) Scope 3 covers CO2 emissions from raw material procurement, distribution, customers’ use, and after-use of lifecycle stages.
