The memorandum was signed by Igor Sechin, President and Chairman of the Management Board at Rosneft, Marco Tronchetti Provera, Chairman and CEO of Pirelli & C. S.p.A. and Sergei Chemezov, General Director of Rostec State Corporation.

The tyre manufacturing materials would include synthetic rubber, fillers such as carbon black and reinforcing materials, all developed in compliance with Pirelli’s high technical standards.

Pirelli’s zero-emission testing grounds in Vizzola Ticino

Again this year, Pirelli is participating in LifeGate’s project Impatto Zero® to offset the CO2 emissions of the Pirelli testing grounds in Vizzola Ticino through projects in support of woodland areas.

Impatto Zero® includes an environmental impact assessment to quantify the carbon dioxide emissions of all sorts of products, services, events, lifestyles and other activities, while proposing projects and other actions aimed at reducing CO2 emissions.

Finally, CO2 is then offset to help protect the forests and woodlands in select geographic areas both within Italy and around the world.

LifeGate has assigned two particular projects to Pirelli: both the creation and the protection of 6,604m3 of forestlands growing in Costa Rica and 3,232m3 of forestlands in Carpaneta, in the Province of Mantua, Italy. The achievement of these two goals will result in offsetting 20,202kg of CO2 produced over a period of three years at the Pirelli testing grounds in Vizzola Ticino.
