ComunicatoCopenaghenPirelli Tyres and Parts has adhered to the Copenhagen Communiqué, the initiative promoted by the British organisation the Prince of Wales’s Corporate Leaders’ Group on Climate Change and supported by over 500 companies at a world level.

The basic structure of the agreement envisages:

  • a maximum limit of global emissions and a long term procedure for the reduction of all gas sourced emissions of greenhouse effect for the period 2013-2050.
  • immediate commitment by the industrialised countries for the ‘de-carbonisation’ of the economy
  • intervention by the developing countries to delineate a plan for the reduction of emissions.
