Pirelli Confirmed To UN Global Compact LEAD

Pirelli Confirmed To UN Global Compact LEAD

The tiremaker is the only company from the "automobiles & parts sector" included at the global level.

Pirelli has been confirmed Global Compact LEAD of the United Nations, the only company in the Automobiles & Parts sector to be included at the global level. This year composed of 37 companies, the Global Compact LEAD gathers the groups with the greatest commitment in the world to the implementation of the 10 Principles of the Global Compact of the United Nations.

Marco Tronchetti Provera, CEO and executive vice chairman of Pirelli, stated: “For Pirelli, industry means innovation, and that means accelerating change for the benefit of all and to safeguard the environment. The confirmation of Pirelli’s inclusion in the Global Compact LEAD of the United Nations is a reason to be proud and is recognition of our constant efforts to achieve challenging goals through actions that bring concrete results.”

The Global Compact of the United Nations is the greatest company sustainability initiative in the world. to qualify as “LEAD,” a company must take part in at least two Global Compact “Action Platforms” which unite companies, local networks, academies, civil society and governments to resolve complex issues of sustainability and deliver innovation in favor of global goals. In addition, participants must communicate their own progress through an annual sustainability report that details the results achieved in terms of implementing the Ten Principles.

Sanda Ojiambo, CEO and executive director of the UN Global Compact, said: “LEAD companies represent the highest level of engagement with the UN Global Compact. More than ever before, the world needs businesses of all sizes — like the ones announced as LEAD today — that continuously work to improve their sustainability performance and take action to build a better world.”

Belonging the Global Compact of the United Nations, which Pirelli joined in 2004, is a testament to a company’s conviction that effective solutions require a holistic approach to development, fruit of the joint efforts of companies and stakeholders at the global level, which combines economic, social and environmental capital.
