On December 16th, Pirelli received valuable recognition from Confindustria Romania for its Corporate Social Responsibility work.
The Chairman of Confindustria Romania, Mauro Maria Angelini, on the occasion of the first Excellence Awards Gala was keen to highlight with an award the outstanding results delivered by Pirelli through its work in Romania.
Pirelli has launched numerous projects and partnerships in the Slatina area; some of them, such as the Intercampus Slatina Project, specifically focus on children, whereas others promote exchange and collaboration partnerships, such as that between the Niguarda Hospital in Milan and the Slatina County Hospital.
Pirelli has established relationships with both the Bucharest and Craiova University hubs, focusing on technological innovation and spreading Italian culture in the Slatina area. Pirelli’s presence and work in Romania is bearing fruit.
During the “Supplier Qualitas Convention”, an annual event in which FCA rewards its best suppliers, Pirelli received the “Complete value chain support” award, distinguishing itself, in a group of over 900 suppliers, for the constant support provided in the achievement of the FCA group’s goals.
The partnership between the two companies also includes racing tyres, especially for the Ferrari and Maserati brands.
LEADER FOR THE COMPLETENESS OF ITS STRATEGY IN THE FIGHT AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE AND TRANSPARENCY IN COMMUNICATION
Pirelli has been recognized as leader on the “Climate Disclosure Leadership Index Italy 2014” (CDLI), an index which evaluates the completeness of a company’s strategy against climate change and the transparency of its communication to stakeholders. Pirelli scored 99/100.
The result was announced today in Milan during the presentation of the CDP Italy 100 Climate Change Report 2014, prepared by SDA-Bocconi with the support of IMQ, and focused on the ways in which the 100 biggest listed Italian companies face and manage climate change.
Pirelli’s commitment to investors and stakeholders in the challenging area of climate change can be seen in its integration of environmental sustainability targets – both for products and processes – into the Group’s Industrial Plan. Pirelli has set itself the goal of reducing rolling resistance by 40% for its car tyres, by 20% in the truck segment and by 10% in motorcycles by 2020 compared with 2007. By the same deadline, 2020, Pirelli plans to reduce specific CO2 emissions by 15% and the specific consumption of energy in its factories by 18% compared with 2009.
Pirelli’s main global commitments in the area of Climate Change includes CDP Supply Chain, a programme which in 2014 involved over 120 strategic suppliers in the quantification of benefits in financial, reputational and risk management terms stemming from the correct management of its CO2 emissions.
Pirelli has further underwritten, in the context of the Prince of Wales’s Corporate Leaders Group, the “Trillion Tonne Communiqué”, a programme-document for the reduction of global emissions with the aim of keeping the earth’s temperature rise within a 2° C limit. Pirelli also subscribed to “Road to Paris 2015”, an international initiative which aims to promote the cooperation between the public and private sectors in order to find shared solutions and policies to deal with climate change. The initiative resulted in Pirelli’s signing of the international agreement on climate change (“Paris Declaration”) which will be underwritten during the next worldwide meeting of the UNFCCC which will take place in the French capital in 2015.
CDP is an international, not-for-profit organization providing the only global system for companies and cities to measure, disclose, manage and share vital environmental information.
