As a global organization with operations in more than 150 countries, the Bridgestone Group is uniquely positioned to co-create long-term social and customer value in communities around the world.

It does so by working collaboratively with various stakeholders such as partners, customers and employees to develop sustainable community solutions that positively impact a wide variety of cultures facing unique challenges. In addition to these long-term efforts, when urgent support is essential — for example, in times of disaster — the Group also steps up to immediately support its communities.

Supporting communities is part of the Group’s Sustainability Framework as it builds trust to propagate value co-creation. With such initiatives, the Group is committed to “Empowerment: Committed to contributing to a society that ensures accessibility and dignity for all” and “Ease: Committed to bringing comfort and peace of mind to mobility life” of the “Bridgestone E8 Commitment”. To achieve this aim, the Group focuses its strengths and competencies on building safer, healthier communities and making education more accessible and inclusive for current and future generations.
