PIRELLI’S CONTRIBUTION TO THE UN GLOBAL OPPORTUNITY EXPLORER


Yesterday, April 26th, during the UN Global Compact Annual Conference in New Delhi, the Global Opportunity Explorer Platform was officially launched.

The platform is a joint project of Sustainia, DNV GL and the UN Global Compact, created with the aim of sharing hundreds of sustainable solutions and business opportunities addressing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The SDGs are put at the centre of all the corporate solutions presented inside the Global Opportunity Explorer, with the belief that business plays significant role in making the world more sustainable by 2030.

Pirelli contributed to the platform presenting its business solution called “Sustainable Rubber Tapping that Improves Livelihoods” mainly linked to SDGs 4-Quality Education, 8-Decent Work and Economic Growth and 15-Life on Land.

The Natural Rubber Sustainability Program, activated in Indonesia with Kirana Megatara, was developed in order to spread awareness of the best growing and tapping techniques for rubber trees; this leads to higher revenues for farmers and lower rates for deforestation associated with unsustainable practices.

ECO-FRIENDLY CAR SHARING GETS THE THUMBS UP

Car sharing has been with us ever since kindly drivers first responded to the homespun philosophy of hopeful hitch-hikers who scribbled – and often misspelled – the names of their destinations on handmade signs.

Today car sharing is very different. It is no longer about the haves helping out the have-nots, but entire communities – from vehicle manufacturers to local councils – coming together to organise and share efficient fleets of cars. It’s also big business. Global revenue from car-sharing services is expected to total $34.6 billion (£24 billion) over the 10 years to 2024, according to Navigant Research.

It’s easy to see why its popularity is soaring. Sharing cars means sharing the significant costs of owning them – and that includes the purchase price, tax, insurance, testing, parking and maintenance. Saving on overheads, of course, means you can afford to splash out on moments of motoring luxury. How about taking a spin to the shops in a prestige car? A drop-top with premium Pirelli tyres?
