The Bridgestone Group has set a new target in Milestone 2030 to reduce its absolute CO2 emissions (Scope 1 and 2*1) by 50% by 2030 (compared to 2011).
In 2020, the Group continued our efforts to improve energy efficiency and introduce renewable energy sources, and has achieved 31% reduction compared to 2011. This result was also affected by the decrease in production volume due to COVID-19 pandemic, but the Group will continue to make further efforts.
- 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.
