Bridgestone Corporation has announced a “Sustainability Business Framework” aimed at guiding their initiatives for supporting safe and secure mobility and contributing to a carbon-neutral society. The company stated that achieving carbon neutrality by 2050 and reducing its CO2 emissions by 50% by 2030 from the 2011 level are the primary goals of this environmental framework.
Newer targets for 2012, long-term environmental framework were laid down in 2020 with the introduction of a new “Milestone 2030” set of medium-term environmental goals.
