The Pirelli Sustainability Model is inspired by the United Nations Global Compact, of which Pirelli has been an active member since 2004, by the Stakeholder Engagement Principles set out in AA1000 and by the ISO 26000 guidelines.
Pirelli’s Responsible management runs through the entire value chain. Every operating unit integrates economic, social and environmental responsibility in its own activity, while cooperating constantly with other units and with stakeholders; this allows the Group to effectively manage risks and opportunities related to its processes, products and services, with a constant focus on innovation and with the awareness of the role of a multinational group in a global context.
Pirelli Group adopts a "multi-stakeholder" approach, it in fact pursues sustainable and steady growth, the latter being as much as possible based on a fair balance between the different expectations of all those who interact with the Company. The interactions with stakeholder are based on proactive dialogue aimed at confronting and collecting their expectations in order for Pirelli to create shared growth.
The management systems adopted by the Group follow internationally recognized standards: quality management system is certified against ISO 9001, ISO/TS 16949, ISO/IEC 17025 Standards, environmental management system is certified against ISO 14001 Standard and occupational health and safety management system is certified against OHSAS18001 Standard.
In addition to the above, from 2004 the SA8000® international standard is reference tool identified by Pirelli as the benchmark for assessing the consistency of the Group's Social Responsibility within its affiliates and its supply chain.
Pirelli's sustainable performance and its new challenges are reported to Stakeholders every year via the Annual Report, prepared in accordance to the main international sustainability reporting frameworks and certified by third party.
