- Confirmation of greater use of materials from renewable sources or recycled
- Renewal of commitment to the reduction of CO2 emissions in the supply chain
Milan, 12 October 2022 – Dealing with the challenges of the current macroeconomic context through a supply chain that is always more sustainable and with lower CO2 emissions, focused on high quality raw materials and services, and with continuous innovation through a global presence and stability of supply. These are the principle factors that have guided the assignment of the Pirelli Supplier Award 2022, the recognition that Pirelli gives each year to nine suppliers from the total of more than 15,000 of its global supply chain, that distinguished themselves in making Pirelli’s supply chain even more sustainable, innovative and qualitatively excellent.
The 9 awards to suppliers of raw materials and services who distinguished themselves in the last year were presented today by the Executive Vice Chairman and CEO, Marco Tronchetti Provera and Chief Procurement Officer, Andrea Maganzani, at a ceremony at Pirelli’s headquarters in Milan, with the participation of the Group’s top management.
Marco Tronchetti Provera, Executive Vice Chairman and CEO of Pirelli, commented: “the sharing of our company values with our suppliers is a key step towards achieving the goals we have set, in particular those linked to sustainability and innovation. These strategic factors enable us to remain competitive even at this particular time. For this reason we wanted to award the companies that have become important partners for our activities throughout the world”.
During the ceremony, which saw the participation of almost 150 of the Group’s preferred suppliers, Pirelli’s strategy was reiterated with its roadmap for growth in the use of innovative materials derived from renewable and recycled sources to achieve the objectives of the Group’s 2025 Industrial Plan.
