In addition to its agricultural activities, Firestone Liberia contributes to local communities by providing free health care to employees and their families and operating numerous schools.
       ISCC Plus certification highlights the company’s progress towards its stated goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2050 and producing tires using only environmentally friendly materials.

Actions taken as progress in using 100% sustainable materials accelerates. in our products by 2050,” said Rick Burnett, vice president of domestic manufacturing for Bridgestone Americas.
