Pirelli Voronezh: New life for forest

Voronezh Tyre Plant partner of a campaign
for the safeguard of forests




In order to enlarge Russia’s green treasures, Pirelli acquired 5,000 young oaks to be planted in one of the forestry near Voronezh. About 20 employees of Voronezh factory including VTP General Director and Heads of production, R&D and HSE functions took part in the campaign. Some employees joined with their children.

5,000 little oaks were planted on an area of 2.3 hectares previously affected by fires and drought. Due to the closed root system planted oaks have good adaptability and suitable for planting at any time of the year.

“Although such social initiatives are usual for Pirelli it was the first time when Voronezh Tyre Plant took part in such campaign, – said Yuri Gribanov, VTP General Director. – The company supports plenty of charitable and social projects around the world. Developing production in Voronezh we plan to support social responsibility values not only among our employees but we also intent to involve local community into various social projects.”

Operation “Volunteers Join Together” for Pirelli Romania

For the fifth year running Pirelli Romania sponsored an environmental initiative in the Slatina area, where our factory is located.

Volunteers Join Together” – the name of the operation – involved over a hundred employees. The volunteers met up early in the morning of Saturday 11th October in Streharet Forest, in the outskirts of the town, to clean up one of the favourite locations for barbecue enthusiasts.

Divided into teams, they raked over the whole area, collecting over 200 bags of rubbish including plastic, paper, organic waste and even construction scrap.

A social responsible initiative for the company and a deep commitment by the participants who tackled the day with a certain dose of competitive sporting spirit. In fact, the three teams that collected the greatest amount of rubbish were awarded a trophy and a bonsai, as reward for their commitment on such an important topic as environment.
