The FIA has awarded the Three-Star Environmental Accreditation to Bridgestone for its motorsport initiatives. The FIA’s program aims to help international motorsport and mobility stakeholders measure and improve their environmental performance.
Through the introduction of an environmental management system, the FIA provides companies with a three-level framework to enable them to accredit their activities. These are:
Three-Star – Best Practice: Demonstrate best practice and commitment to seek continual improvement through the implementation of an environmental management system.
Two-Star – Good Practice: Demonstrate good environmental performance and be close to follow internationally developed roadmaps toward environmental management.
One-Star – Basic Practice: Demonstrate basic environmental performance and commitment to improve.
Bridgestone was subsequently awarded the Three-Star accreditation as its initiatives aligned with the FIA’s highest level of framework.
“We are proud and delighted to be awarded the FIA’s Three-Star Environmental Accreditation,” said Tomoyuki Takagi, vice president and officer global marketing strategy, Bridgestone Corporation. “This partnership aligns with the Bridgestone E8 Commitment, our corporate commitment which accelerates our transformation to a sustainable solutions company. We aim to inspire excitement and spread joy to the world of mobility while striving to achieve the realization of a carbon neutral mobility society with our technologies and initiatives.”
“I would like to congratulate Bridgestone Motorsport on achieving Three-Star Environmental Accreditation from the FIA,” added Felipe Calderon, environmental and sustainability commission president, FIA. “They have shown a strong commitment to achieve high standards in their sustainability programs, and have put in place forward-thinking processes to ensure that this continues into the future.”
