Bridgestone gains RobecoSAM sustainability award
Bridgestone Corporation has received a Silver Class Sustainability Award 2017 from sustainable investment specialist RobecoSAM. This is the first time the company has received this honour.
RobecoSAM rates major global companies based on their sustainability in terms of economic, environmental and social dimensions, with highly rated companies being awarded Bronze, Silver or Gold class distinctions. More than 2,400 companies from 60 industries were assessed as part of the 2017 awards process.
Bridgestone received a high score in the environmental dimension, which reflected its maximum scores in two assessment criteria-climate strategy and environmental reporting, in the Auto Components industry sector category. The company also earned high scores for its innovation management in the economic category. These strong scores led to its inclusion in the Silver Class.
Last year, Bridgestone was also included for the first time in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World), a sustainability index compiled collaboratively by S&P Dow Jones Indices and RobecoSAM.
