How are we building a more sustainable future?
By lowering our own carbon footprint
By helping our customers lower their carbon emissions
Jan-Maarten de Vries, CEO, Bridgestone Mobility SolutionsAs a part of Bridgestone, we share its global commitment to help shape a more sustainable future of mobility. Our fleet management solution Webfleet already helps customers to reduce their fuel consumption and carbon emissions by up to 25%. But as a company, we want to do more. To put Our Green Mission into action we partnered with Justdiggit to positively impact climate, nature and people.
How do we lower our own carbon footprint?
Regreening 5134 ha in Tanzania
To offset the carbon emissions from our supply chain and facilities, Bridgestone Mobility Solutions partnered with Justdiggit to invest in re-greening 5134 hectares of land in Tanzania. That is an area six times the size of Amsterdam centre.
Justdiggit is a Dutch NGO and partner of the UN Environment Programme. It is focused on landscape restoration through the re-greening of drylands in Africa to make a positive impact on climate, nature, and people.
By re-greening this area, in total around 72,000 tonnes of carbon will be sequestered through bringing back over 377,500 trees. This programme not only takes carbon out of the air, but it also positively impacts the livelihoods of over 29,500 people, saves 975 million litres of water yearly and restores biodiversity.
Together, we can bring back nature and cool down the planet.Learn more
Our carbon footprint scan
We wanted to better understand the impact our business was having on the environment. That's why yearly we asked Impact Institute to create a scan of our carbon footprint since 2018.
Using these results, over the last four years we have offset our carbon footprint by re-greening an area in Tanzania via a separate project with our partner Justdiggit.
In that time, we've worked on re-greening a total area of 6.5 million m2 of degraded lands. That equates to 24,000 trees regrown, 460 million litres of water sequestered and 2,200 local people in Tanzania empowered.
How do we help our customers lower their carbon emissions?
We understand that for fleet managers, it can sometimes seem like protecting our ecosystem does not fit with your other business goals. How do you run an environmentally friendly business while also keeping your costs under control, your vehicles on the road and your working processes as efficient as possible?
At Webfleet, we do not believe these are separate objectives. We believe what is good for business and what is good for the planet can be the same thing.
Our award-winning fleet management solution provides real-time and historic visibility over how your vehicles are being used. You can zero in on areas where fuel is being wasted and take steps to improve fuel usage. For example, trip data shows you where drivers are idling or could engage cruise control more often, helping promote more sustainable and fuel-efficient driving.
By connecting to your truck’s FMS, you get clear insights into the trips your drivers are taking and how your fuel is being used.Learn more

Since 2018, Webfleet has been encouraging its customers to switch from paper invoicing to e-invoicing. For every paper invoice that is still sent, we donate 30% of the costs for the invoice to Justdiggit.
So far, more than 22,000 customers have switched to e-invoicing. Because of this, we were able to reduce printed paper invoices by more than 280,000 copies.
