Bridgestone is paying close attention to the impact of CO2 emissions. Our efforts to reduce co2 emissions go beyond tire manufacturing. We continually work to reduce emissions, not only in our direct footprint but also within the life cycle of our products.
We recognize that climate change is a real and significant risk to the natural resources we utilize to run our business and to the economic well-being of our world. Through rigorous tracking and the constant search for improvements in energy conservation, energy efficiency, and renewable energy, our carbon dioxide emissions are decreasing.
We continue to develop new products with sustainability in mind. The Bridgestone Ecopia line of tires reduces rolling resistance, or rolling drag, allowing drivers to go farther on less energy. When rolling resistance is reduced, the tire moves more efficiently, improving fuel economy and thereby lessening the tire’s impact on the environment.
At Bridgestone’s nationwide network of company-owned retail stores, nearly 137 million metric tons of CO2 are conserved each year by recycling used oil recovered from vehicles.
