Bridgestone Launches ‘What Really Matters’ Brand Platform

Bridgestone Launches ‘What Really Matters’ Platform

Bridgestone says the platform showcases the company's focus on creating a more sustainable world for future generations. 

Bridgestone Americas, Inc. (Bridgestone) launched “What Really Matters,” a new brand platform that it says is linked to the values of the global Bridgestone E8 Commitment and showcases the company’s focus on creating a more sustainable world for future generations. 

Bridgestone says the What Really Matters platform marks a shift from the company’s traditional product performance marketing campaigns to showcase purpose-driven actions that are improving the way people move, live, work and play. This targeted, multi-channel activation aligns with the company’s evolution from a global leader in tires and rubber to a forward-thinking sustainable solutions company helping shape the future of mobility. 

“What Really Matters is more than a marketing campaign and goes far beyond what Bridgestone makes and sells. This is a new behavioral platform that will emphasize what really matters to us as a company and those we serve,” said Sara Correa, chief marketing officer, Bridgestone Americas. “In highlighting the collective actions we are already taking today across our company, we will demonstrate how we are delivering on our Bridgestone E8 Commitment and making positive, long-term impacts on society for future generations.” 

Bridgestone says the platform includes comprehensive omnichannel creative produced by like-minded partner Leo Burnett that will engage Bridgestone’s consumers, customers, and stakeholder groups. The platform will be initially introduced in the United States and then expanded to additional countries across the Americas region. 

“Bridgestone is grounded in a philosophy similar to our own founders’ ethos, ‘What’s good for people is good for business,'” said Mikal Pittman, EVP executive creative director at Leo Burnett. “The What Really Matters platform is designed to bring Bridgestone’s core belief of helping society to the heart of its advertising, and it expands our ability to tell the brand story in more impactful ways. There’s a ton of good happening at Bridgestone and we’re excited to unlock even more creative ways to bring those stories to life.” 

Bridgestone adds the new What Really Matters creative highlights various aspects of its product and solutions portfolio, business operations, strategic investments, and innovation initiatives including: 

  • Tire retreading and guayule-derived natural rubber farming that advance sustainable tire operations and material circularity. 
  • Bridgestone Fleet Care offerings, including Intellitire monitoring and Azuga fleet management solutions, that promote safer, more economic, and more efficient fleet operations for both large fleets and small businesses. 
  • Kodiak Robotics autonomous long-haul trucks that offer learning and integration opportunities for smart vehicle and tire technologies. 
  • Airfree and lunar rover tires that signify the future of advanced tire technology. 
  • High-grip rubber for gloves and handrims of wheelchair athletes, including six-time Paralympian Aaron Pike, to push performance and innovation in adaptive sports.
