Our Campinas factory has won an award for its conservation and re-use of water
On World Water Day (22 March) Pirelli added yet another important piece to its sustainability mosaic, considered to be of increasing fundamental value.
That very Thursday, our Brazilian factory at Campinas won a prestigious award from the Sao Paolo Industrial Federation FIESP, recognising the commitment of our Brazilian colleagues to the treatment of water after its use in production.
It is the first time Pirelli Brazil has beaten off the stiff competition from various other major companies.
The project honoured with the award is the result of a gradual investment carried out over the last year and which has enabled the plant to re-use 100% of the water it treats internally. It has also ensured a 35% reduction in the volume of water taken from the River Capivari.
This important award is the result of a series of analyses and evaluations made by the public companies responsible for the management of water resources.
