The Pirelli sustainability model is inspired by the United Nations Global Compact, the Stakeholder Engagement principles set out in AA1000 and the ISO 26000 Guidelines, embracing the entire value chain to preserve and develop group assets. In October 2004, in a letter addressed to the Secretary General, Kofi Annan, Pirelli Group formally declared its adherence to the United Nations Global Compact and its commitment to observe and support its Ten Principles in the areas of human rights, labour standards, the environment and the fight against corruption. This letter is published in the Sustainability section of the Pirelli website.

Compliance of the Pirelli Sustainability Model with the AA1000 Principles and ISO26000 Guidelines was audited by a third party once again in 2013, as certified by the Assurance Statement at the end of this report.
