The Dow Jones Indexes
Pirelli has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index since 2002.
For the fifth year in a row, Pirelli was confirmed as global sustainability leader in the Auto parts and Tyres segment in September 2011, as part of the Dow Jones Sustainability World and Europe Indexes.
Pirelli's overall rating for 2011 was 91% (+1% from 2010), compared with an industry average of 53% (-2% from 2010).
The Dow Jones Indexes are revised every year by SAM Group, a Swiss asset manager responsible for assessment, admission or exclusion of companies from the Dow Jones Sustainability Equity Indexes.
In January 2012 Pirelli was named World Sustainability Leader in the "Auto parts and Tyres" Sector and Gold Class Company for the fifth year in a row in the prestigious Sustainability YearBook 2012, published by SAM Group in collaboration with KPMG.
The YearBook is one of the most complete and authoritative global benchmarking tools for sustainable finance specialists. It includes only the top sustainability scoring companies, ranked as such by SAM Group in the Dow Jones Sustainability Assessment, or 15% of firms in 58 business sectors.
