Eco-sustainability of Pirelli processes

The Group operates a total of 25 production sites. These are distributed as follows:

  • Pirelli Tyre: 4 in Italy, 5 in Brazil, 2 in Great Britain, 2 in Germany, 1 in China, 2 in Turkey, 2 in Romania, 1 in Argentina, 1 in Egypt, 1 in Spain, 1 in the United States and 1 in Venezuela.
  • Pirelli Eco Technology: 1 in Italy and 1 in Romania.

All Pirelli Tyre facilities have an ISO 14001 certified environmental management system that is co-ordinated at the corporate level by means of Group procedures. These procedures are also being modified and extended to the Eco Technology production sites.

Pirelli periodically audits the environmental performance of all facilities that are not classifiable as manufacturing sites (offices etc.), focusing in particular but not only on their power and water consumption.

The ecological impact of these facilities is marginal (i.e. 1.3% of total Group consumption) in comparison with the impact generated by production plants. However, measures are currently being taken both to reduce the consumption of natural and energy resources and to improve awareness of the specific environmental issues that depend on the different sizes of each facility.
