Group “No Smoking Company” Policy

In June 2003 a letter sent by top management to all the Group’s Chief Executive Officers announced the Company’s decision to become a “No Smoking Company”, to safeguard the health of both smokers and non-smokers. This decision is consistent with Pirelli’s policy to protect the health of its employees in all countries where the Group operates.

Specific training/information initiatives on the damage caused by cigarette smoke were also implemented through the distribution of leaflets, conferences on nicotine addiction and publication of questionnaires on the Intranet.

Enforcement of the no smoking policy also led to reports of 55 violations of the policy by staff on Pirelli premises.
