Cinturato leader of Green Performance

The Cinturato P7 and P6 passed the tests carried out by ADAC with flying colours. ADAC is the most important and prestigious automobile club in both Germany and Europe, with over 19 million members.

So Pirelli confirms its leadership in terms of performance, safety and eco-compatibility, demonstrating yet again to have made the philosophy and driving values of “Green Performance” its own.

The test results, which have also been distributed through the automobile clubs of Austria and Switzerland (the OAMTC and TCS), show how the Cinturato P7 and P6 are extremely reliable tyres and, therefore, considered strongly recommendable to users.

During the tests, the Pirelli Cinturato P7 turned out to be the best tyre that marries a high level of performance in both the wet and dry with low rolling resistance, greater mileage and reduced sound emission. This is the result of Pirelli’s approach to green performance, which has permitted the company to conquer a position of leadership by combining safety, performance and eco-compatibility.

There were similar results for the Cinturato P6, which not only beat all tyres in its tests, but it is also the only cover to be able to take its place in the Green Performance area. (see graph).

Tyre and Parts signs the Copenhagen Communiqué

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 objective of the commitment: develop new policies – in particular for the control of CO2 emissions – as a response to the urgency of the question of climate change.

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.

The Copenhagen Communiqué will be presented at the next United Nations Conference on the climate due to take place from 7 December. Pirelli Tyre and Parts, together with ENEL and Telecom, is among the Italian signatories of the paper, a testimony to the Group’s commitment to a sustainable environment.

In 2007, Pirelli Tyre had already adhered to the Bali Communiqué on the occasion of the United Nations Conference there on climatic change, together with 150 other international companies, a document for concrete strategic development through joint intervention of governments for an exhaustive world agreement on the climate.
