On 13 March 2013, Pirelli will host its ESG Investor Briefing, as part of a joint PRI-UN Global Compact initiative designed to improve company-investor communications on ESG information, following the model of traditional financial quarterly calls.
During the 1-hour webcast conference call Mr. Marco Tronchetti Provera, Chairman and CEO, and Mr. Maurizio Sala, Head of Planning & Control Department and Filippo Bettini, Head of Sustainability & Risk Governance will present the company’s ESG value drivers using a framework developed in collaboration with Global Compact LEAD companies and PRI investors, followed by a 30 minutes Q&A session for participating investors.
The Pirelli ESG Investor Briefing is a part of a series of 10-15 pilot presentations by Global Compact companies in 2012-2013 designed to test and refine the ESG Investor Briefing concept and develop a framework complementary to sustainability reporting for corporate communication with the investor community on strategic ESG risks and opportunities.

On 2 August in Shanghai, the magazine Motor Trend bestowed on our Cinturato P1the ‘2012 Environmentally Friendly Tyre of China’ title, attributing to the tyre totally unique characteristics of efficiency and sustainability.
During voting, issues were examined such as how the tyre can carry out an important role in reducing harmful emissionsand how the tyre manufacturers can optimise their ethical and social responsibility practices to best help a ‘sustainable circulation’ of traffic.
Pirelli pit-stop Pirelli at Henkel’s offices; for the first time tyre maintenance and control directly at the place of work
Henkel continues is path towards sustainable mobility and announces a new project in collaboration with Pirelli, a high profile sustainable partner committed to the dissemination of the cultre of road safety. Henkel employees, on the occasion of its first ‘Sustainability Day’ at its Milan headquarters, installed a tyre pumping station available to all employees. The Pirelli station represents a new piece of a wider sustainability strategy which Henkel has been pursuing successfully for many years, also directly involving employees in sensitizing initiatives. Even an apparently simply gesture like checking one’s tyre pressure can contribute to ensuring vehicle and passenger safety on the one hand and increasing motor efficiency, therefore reducing consumption and emissions, on the other.
During the inauguration of the station, Henkel employees also had the possibility of speaking with Pirelli technicians to learn things about correct tyre maintenance like tread depth, damage that can compromise safety, the difference between winter and summer tyres, pressure and methods of inflation.
The initiative was part of Henkel’s first Sustainability Day, conceived to motivate employee engagement with themes of importance to the company such as the consumption of resources, waste management, safety, social progress and the growth in value of company activities.
“We recently announced a new sustainability strategy which will see us committed from now until 2030 to increasing our efficiency by 30%, with short terms targets set for 2015. To achieve these results it is indispensable that everyone be involved, along the entire value chain and in all areas of activity, with a continual monitoring of the milestones reached. With regard to safety, we are implementing a strict policy of eliminating all types of workplace accidents, through continuous training in responsible behaviour. The theme of safe driving is dear to our hearts; our goal is to shine a light on such arguments also as a way of caring for the health of our employees,” said Giacomo Archi, Chairman and CEO of Henkel Italia.
“In Pirelli we live sustainability as a natural way of managing our business and of creating value for all stakeholders”, said Filippo Bettini, the Pirelli Group’s Director for Sustainability and Risk Governance. “For this reason we developed a plan that fully fits into the business’s growth strategy and which will lead us to become ever more committed to process innovation, with more challenging targets, such as a 70% reduction in the drawing of water by 2015 or the 15% reduction in specific CO2 emissions and energy consumption in the same time frame. And, obviously, a commitment to continuous product innovation, developing tyres that deliver safety, performance and driving comfort in all atmospheric conditions, as well as environmental efficiency. At the heart of Pirelli plan, underlined Bettini, “is the quality of the workplace environment and the quality of the work of our employees, as well as a commitment to transforming the education of road safety in a true culture of safety. Occasions like today constitute a further cultural enrichment and a stimulus for future commitments”.
