As stated in The Values and Ethics Code of Pirelli, suppliers and outside workers play a vital role in improving the overall competitiveness of the company. While seeking the keenest competitive edge, the Group bases its relations with suppliers and outside workers on fairness, impartiality, and ensuring equal opportunities for all parties concerned.
In turn, the Social ResponsibilityPolicy for Occupational Health, Safety and Rights, and Environment states that the sustainable development strategies of the Group entails, among other things, continuous improvement in the environmental and occupational health and safety conditions affected by its own activities, in firm compliance with and in support of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Labour Organization’s declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development and the United Nations Convention against Corruption. Similarly, the policy states that Pirelli is committed to establishing and maintaining appropriate procedures to evaluate and select suppliers and subcontractors based on their level of social and environmental responsibility.
The sustainable management of the supply chain is thus explicit in Pirelli’s Quality Policy, as well as being the subject of the Green Sourcing Policy. The Policies mentioned are available in multiple languages on the Pirelli website, in the Sustainability section, to which the reader is referred for the full text.
