Company to share best sustainability practices with network’s other high-profile members
Bridgestone MEA, a pioneer in sustainable mobility and advanced solutions, has joined the Sustainability Network managed by the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry. As one of the newly inducted members, Bridgestone will take part in the network’s collaborative efforts to advance Dubai’s social and environmental goals.
Bridgestone’s membership will pave the way for the company to share its progress and success in providing more efficient and sustainable fleet mobility and fleet management solutions. It will also take the initiative to help foster a stronger and more vibrant Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) culture within the local business community.
In addition, the company intends to contribute to implementing long-lasting solutions to issues impacting the private sector such as employee welfare, social inclusion, waste management, and supply chain.
The Dubai Chamber Sustainability Network describes itself as the focal point for private entities to exchange knowledge, expertise, and best practices in implementing CSR and sustainability programs. Through the network’s workshops and other events staged to build CSR leadership, its members can network, learn, and share experiences while also connecting with other stakeholders from the public and private sectors.
Stefano Sanchini, Regional Managing Director, Bridgestone MEA, said: “We have long been committed to shaping a more sustainable mobility future. The move is in line with our efforts towards the global sustainability movement and the growing actions of Dubai and the UAE to protect the environment. At Bridgestone, we have implemented our mid-to-long-term business plans with a focus on sustainability and CSR activities. We are guided by our mission focusing on ‘Serving Society with Superior Quality’ and the group’s worldwide ‘Our Way to Serve’ CSR commitment. Bridgestone is thrilled to be onboard the Sustainability Network. We are looking forward to working with the network to achieve a carbon-neutral society in Dubai and the rest of the world.”
Bridgestone joins the network’s high-profile members such as PepsiCo, Nestle, Aramex, Al Ghurair Group, Majid Al Futtaim Properties, DP World, Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank (ADIB), Emirates Flight Catering, and many more. A sustainable mobility player, the company has invested in efforts to improve the efficiency and accessibility of electric mobility for all drivers.
