Bridgestone Americas, has announced that all five of the company’s Tennessee plants have been inducted into the Tennessee Green Star Partnership.
The Tennessee Green Star Partnership is an environmental leadership program facilitated by TDEC to recognize Tennessee manufacturers that are committed to sustainability and continuous improvement throughout their entire operation.
“At Bridgestone, our commitment to the environment and sustainability is a priority in all aspects of our business, from tire manufacturing to industrial products,” said Jim DeMouy, vice president of Environment, Health, Safety and Sustainability at Bridgestone Americas. “It is a priority and a key pillar to our global commitment, Our Way to Serve, in which we are dedicated to making the communities where we work stronger and healthier for generations to come. We are proud all five of our Tennessee plants are in the Tennessee Green Star Partnership and applaud TDEC for encouraging Tennessee manufacturers to demonstrate a commitment to environmental sustainability.”
This marks a significant environmental achievement for Bridgestone Americas as it becomes the first company in Tennessee to have three or more plants in the partnership.
