Bridgestone, a global leader in tyres and sustainable mobility solutions,
announced that its tyre manufacturing plant in Rome, Italy (‘Roma’) has become the first tyre
plant across the whole of Bridgestone to achieve the coveted and globally recognised
International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) PLUS certification.
ISCC PLUS recognises compliance with and transparency around sustainability and traceability
of raw materials including bio, bio-circular and circular-based material in the manufacturing
process. Working towards a more sustainable world, ISCC PLUS aims to support the transition
to a circular economy and bioeconomy by contributing to the implementation of environmentally,
socially and economically sustainable production.
The certification, which evaluates all the sustainable raw materials in the value chain to
determine and verify compliance with environmental requirements, also marks a step in
Bridgestone’s ambitious global journey towards the use of 40% sustainable materials by 2030,
and 100% sustainable materials by 2050.
Roma plant became the first tyre manufacturing facility of Bridgestone to achieve ISCC PLUS
certification at the beginning of September thanks to its use of Bio-Circular and Circular-based
materials. Bridgestone EMIA will be expanding the assessment programme across further
plants in Europe from 2023.
Commenting on the ISCC PLUS certification Emilio Tiberio, COO & CTO at Bridgestone EMIA
said: “We are on a journey to 2050 and the delivery, by then, of our major environmental goals;
carbon neutrality and the use of 100% sustainable materials. This ISCC PLUS certification for
Roma plant is a step along the way to become a leading sustainable solutions company and
reflects our hard work and dedication to overcome the technological and market challenges to
fully sustainable and renewable tyres.”
Bridgestone’s Roma plant isn’t the only facility to enjoy success with ISCC PLUS certification
this month, as the Bridgestone Aiken County Passenger/Light Truck Radial tyre plant also
became the first tyre manufacturing facility in America to earn ISCC PLUS recognition.
The sustainability certification at both Bridgestone’s Roma and Aiken plants aligns perfectly with
the “Ecology” and “Energy” values in the Bridgestone E8 Commitment – the broad, global
corporate commitment that clearly defines the value Bridgestone is promising to deliver to
society, customers, and future generations in eight focus areas.
