For the sixth year running Pirelli Romania sponsored the “Volunteers Join Together” initiative, entirely dedicated to environment.
More than two hundred employees, twice as many as last year, met on Saturday morning in Strehareti forest, in the outskirts of Slatina, to clean up one of the favourite locations for outdoors activities.
An important sustainable initiative which has started to bear fruit: this year, for the first time, the quantity of mixed waste collected, compared to the previous editions, has reduced.
This result brought satisfaction to Pirelli’s employees who lived this special day with their families.
The Ethibel Investment Register ,at the basis of the ESI Excellence Indexes, is independently defined by Forum ETHIBEL, directly involved in the selection, research and analysis of the leader companies in Corporate Social Responsibility.
The selection activity is supported by the rating agency Vigeo, expert in the analysis of economic, social and environmental performance of European Companies.
“Pirelli supports many cultural and sporting initiatives around the world, and its fruitful collaboration with Inter Campus is a perfect example of our company’s commitment to social responsibility. I am pleased that today, thanks to the important cooperation of the regional authority of Voronezh, and our partner Rostec, the Inter Campus project has been launched here in Russia, too, one of the most important business areas for our company.”
With these words, Marco Tronchetti Provera – Pirelli Chairman and CEO – opened the first event of the Inter Campus project in Voronezh. Alexey Gordeev – Governor of the region of Voronezh – Sergey Chemezov – CEO of Rostec – and players from PFC CSKA Moscow were also present.
