By lowering our own carbon footprint
By helping our customers lower their carbon emissions
Thomas Schmidt, CEO and Managing Director, Bridgestone Mobility SolutionsAs part of the Bridgestone Group, we share its global commitment to help achieve a more sustainable society. Our core fleet management solution, WEBFLEET, already supports customers to reduce their fuel consumption and carbon emissions between 10% and 25%. But we want to do more.
Regreening 3380 ha in Tanzania
To offset the carbon emissions from our supply chain and facilities, Webfleet Solutions partnered with Justdiggit to invest in re-greening 3380 hectares of land in Tanzania. That is an area four times bigger than the centre of Amsterdam.
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 51,800 tonnes of carbon will be sequestered through bringing back over 130,000 trees. This programme not only takes carbon out of the air but it also positively impacts the livelihoods of over 18,000 people, saves 700 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 we asked Impact Institute to create a scan of our carbon footprint across 2018 and 2019.
Using these results, over the last two years we have offset our carbon footprint by re-greening an area in Tanzania and Kenya via a separate project with our partner Justdiggit.
In that time, we’ve worked on re-greening a total area of 2.3 million m2 of degraded lands. That equates to 8,500 trees regrown, 46 million litres of water sequestered and 1,100 local people in Tanzania and Kenya empowered.

Since 2018, Webfleet Solutions 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.
