IN THE FRONT LINE FOR EQUAL OPPORTUNITY

Yesterday, institutions and companies met at the headquarters of Assolombarda, Milan, in support of equal opportunity. Diana Bracco, President of the Sodalitas Foundation, presented the ‘Document for equal opportunity and equality at work’, a declaration of intent for the diffusion of a business and political culture of human resources free of discrimination and prejudice and capable of enhancing talent in all its diversity. pariopp09_detail

Promoted by the Sodalitas Foundation, AIAF (Associazione Italiana Imprese Familiari), AIDDA (Associazione Imprenditrici Donne Dirigenti d’Azienda), Impronta Etica, UCID (Unione Cristiana Imprenditori Dirigenti), the Ufficio Nazionale Consigliera di Parità with the support of the Ministry of Work, Health and Social Policies and the Ministry for Equal Opportunity, the Document provides a picture of reference evaluation to guide companies adherent to its application, containing non-detailed regulations but few programmatic commitments based on the principals and key elements of effective programmes of change, tested with success by committed companies that have been associated with the subject for some time.

Sixteen Italian companies voluntarily signed the document on the conclusion of a convention that took place, among the speakers at which were Maurizio Sacconi, Minister of Work, Health and Social Policies and Simonetta Matone, Head of the Cabinet at the Ministry for Equal Opportunity. Among the companies were Abb, Bpm, Bracco, IBM, Nestlé, l’Oréal Italia and Unipol. After having illustrated the commitment of the Group in drafting the Document and the diffusion of a culture of equal opportunity, Antonio Calabrò, director of Institutional and Cultural Affairs and a member of the Presidential Committee of Assolombarda for culture and social responsibility in business, signed the Document for Pirelli, a commitment for the diffusion of policies and resources free of discrimination and prejudice, also contributing in that way to the competitiveness and success of  the company.

For the seventh consecutive year, Pirelli has been confirmed in the twice-yearly review of Financial Times sustainability indices FTSE4Good World and STOXX, which measure corporate performance in terms of respect for international standards of economic, social and environmental sustainability. British independent research provider Eiris, working for the Financial Times, evaluated among other corporate characteristics: sustainable supply chain management, ethical behaviour rules, means of prevention and management of risk, environmental impact management and relations with stakeholders. The review did not admit new companies to the Automobiles & Parts segment of the indices, continuing to include Pirelli as the only Italian company included in that segment.

NEW ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE

The Board of Directors of Pirelli, which met today, reviewed and approved a new organizational structure for the Group. Coherently with the strategy and aim of the 2009-2011 industrial plan to focus on the core business, the company decided to simplify its organizational structure and regroup all activities directly supporting the core business under a new “Tyre and Parts” Department, to be headed by Francesco Gori, who also maintains his role as CEO and Managing Director of Pirelli Tyre.

The reorganization will allow for significant downsizing of the corporate level structures, with savings, once the reorganization is completed, of at least 10 million euros on an annual basis starting in 2010, and regrouping of operating activities necessary for growth of the core business: tyres (Pirelli Tyre) and filters (Pirelli Eco Technology) within the new Department, thus ensuring one single management of corporate processes. This Department will incorporate the activities of Purchasing, Administration and Control, Pirelli Labs, Advertising and Events, Human Resources, Health, Safety & Environment (which also reports to the Group General Counsel), and the Service Centers for information technology and administrative activities.

In addition to the new Department, the following will report directly to the Chairman:

  • the Group General Counsel, Francesco Chiappetta, who will be in charge of, in addition to Legal and Corporate Affairs, Group Compliance, the Risk Officer, Industrial Property, and Security;
  • the Finance Department, led by Francesco Tanzi, who joins the Group and who will be in charge of Finance, Tax, Budget, Risk Management and M&A. Francesco Tanzi was also appointed by the Board of Directors to be the Manager mandated to draft corporate accounting documents;
  • the Institutional and Cultural Affairs Department, headed by Antonio Calabrò;
  • the Image and Brand Extension Department, headed by Andrea Imperiali;
  • the Investor Relations Department, headed by Valeria Leone;
  • the Media Communications Department, headed by Maurizio Abet.

The following will also report directly to the Chairman: Maurizio Sala, as Group Controller (also in charge of Administration and Control for Pirelli Tyre); Human Resources, headed by Fabrizio Rutschmann, for HR strategy and senior management HR; Internal Audit, headed by Maurizio Bonzi; Pirelli Broadband Solutions; Pirelli Ambiente and PZero.

In line with the focus on industrial activities, the reorganization includes closing the Operations Department, headed by Claudio De Conto, who managed with skill and authority the roles and functions assigned to him in recent years. Claudio De Conto, who participated in mapping out the above-indicated Group reorganization, will now focus his activity, as CEO Finance, on Pirelli Real Estate. Together with the other CEO of Pirelli RE, Giulio Malfatto, Claudio De Conto will continue to manage the positive turnaround process underway.
