All Pirelli Tyre industrial sites operating at the end of 2012, as well as the Vizzola Ticino tyre test track, are equipped with environmental management systems designed for continuous improvement of their environmental performance, certified in accordance with the international standard ISO 14001.
Work of preparation for certification of the environmental management system scheduled for 2013 is in turn underway at the new site in Silao (Mexico).
The international standard ISO 14001 was adopted by Pirelli in 1997, and since 2011 all certificates have been given further SAS international accreditation (the Swiss Accreditation Service that assesses and accredits compliance assessment entities – laboratories, inspection and certification bodies).
New plants are also subject to mandatory implementation and certification to the ISO 14001 standard as Group policy. The activity underlying certification, together with control and maintenance of previously implemented and certified systems, is coordinated on a centralised basis by the Health, Safety and Environment Department.
