In 2010 the Board of Directors of Pirelli & C. S.p.A. approved the updated version of the Group Code of Conduct. The Code is a manual of good company practices and behaviors, in compliance with laws and regulations in force in the Countries where Pirelli operates, with a view to prevent situations potentially favorable to the commitment of crimes.
The Code of Conduct represents an operating declination of the Group Ethical Code and it particularly focuses on three areas:
- for Company relations with Public Administrations;
- on Corporate matters and communications to the market;
- for relations with internal subjects and third parties.
The Code of Conduct identifies, though not exhaustively, behaviors in terms of “do’s” and “don’ts”. The “do’s” area states the obligation to comply with laws and regulations in all the Countries where Pirelli operates, as well as the rules of conduct to be followed, while the “don’ts” area identifies the prohibited conducts and behaviors.
The principles and commitments described in the Code of Conduct apply to all Group Affiliates and relevant suppliers, that’s why the Code of Conduct is available both in Employees’ languages and in the languages mostly spoken by Suppliers.
In 2011 the updated version of the Group Code of Conduct has been communicated to Group employees in local languages, through a dedicated internal communication campaign.
