Six Bridgestone Plants Are Now Powered by Renewable Energy

Bridgestone Plants
  • Half a dozen plants that process tires and raw materials for Bridgestone have transitioned to purchasing all of their electricity from renewable energy sources.
  • This means that the company’s ratio of using renewable energy at its production bases is currently around 90%.
  • Bridgestone has made a commitment to becoming carbon-neutral by 2050.

In a move toward more sustainability, Bridgestone Corporation has transitioned its electricity consumption to renewable energy sources at multiple Bridgestone plants in Japan.
