Bridgestone Corporation has been recognized for leadership in corporate transparency and performance on climate change by global environmental non-profit CDP*1, securing a place on its annual ‘A List’ *2. Based on data reported through CDP Climate Change 2023 Questionnaire, Bridgestone is one of 346 companies that achieved an ‘A’ - out of over 21,000 companies scored.

Bridgestone strives to contribute to a realization of carbon neutrality across its value chain. The Group’s efforts include acquisition of SBT (Science Based Targets) certification and increasing use of renewable energy, which we believe have led to the selections of ‘A List’.
