SUSTAINABILITY: AN EXAMPLE FOR THE SECTOR

For the fourth consecutive year, Pirelli has been declared the ‘Autoparts and Tyres’ sector leader in sustainability at a world level and a Gold Class Company in the prestigious 2011 Sustainability Yearbook published by the SAM Group in collaboration with Pricewaterhouse Coopers.

The SAM Group is a Swiss asset management company in Switzerland, focused on sustainable and responsible investment for the evaluation used for admission to the Dow Jones sustainability indices.

Their Sustainability Yearbook http://www.sam-group.com/htmle/yearbook/ is one of the most complete and authoritative reference instruments for sustainability finance operators. It only includes the world’s top sustainability-scoring companies, amounting to 15% of those companies belonging to no fewer than 58 sectors assessed by the SAM Group within the Dow Jones Sustainability Assessment.

Satisfaction for this prestigious recognition comes from Filippo Bettini, Pirelli’s director of sustainability and risk management, who gave an interview to the Italian Stock Exchange site headed ‘Pirelli: CSR applied to tyres’.
