JCN joint communications network (US DoD) ) - Bridgestone announced the developmentof new tire technologies that will contribute to the realization of a sustainable society. These technologies, announced at the World Rubber Summit 2012 in Singapore by Bridgestone Chairman of the Board Shoshi Arakawa, are aimed at developing world-class tiresmade from 100% sustainable materials.
As the world's largest tire and rubber manufacturer, the Bridgestone Group realizes that it has the potential to significantly lessen less·en

Bridgestone has established long-term environmental goals to guide its pursuit of a sustainable society. The Group has placed a high importance on promoting the usage of 100% sustainablematerials. To achieve this goal, Bridgestone will need fully leverage its technical capabilities and diversify and expand the range of renewable resources it uses in the production of tires and other rubber products. To accomplish this, the Group isdiversifying the regions in which it produces natural rubber and expanding the range of reinforced plant fibers it uses.
Furthermore, in order to replace fossil resources with renewable materials, the Group is working to develop synthetic rubber synthetic rubber: see rubber. , carbon black, and rubber compounding agents that can be created from biomass materials. Looking forward to 2050, the Group will continue to advance the development of these technologies and will report on the progress of these initiatives as appropriate.
The Bridgestone Group is developing a number of technologies that can be applied throughout the value chain, from raw materials to finished products. One goal of these initiatives is to achieve the usage of 100% sustainable materials by leveraging 3R technologies (reduce, reuse reuse - Using code developed for one application program in another application.
