On August 5, 2013 the Board of Directors of Pirelli & C. S.p.A. approved the anti-corruption programme, called the Premium Integrity Programme. This is the set of benchmark guidelines concerning prohibited practices of corruption. These represent a systematic set of principles and rules that have already been adopted at Pirelli, complemented by “new” and specific measures, to prevent or reduce the risk of corruption, while further reinforcing the anti-corruption policy of the Group. In Italy, this programme also complements the Legislative Decree 231 Compliance Programme.
The Premium Integrity Programme defines the values, principles and responsibilities that Pirelli, all of its employees and everyone who has business or other collaborative relationships with the Company apply in the battle against corruption. It was developed after a specific audit of Group exposure to corruption risks in the countries where it operates.
This audit will be repeatedly periodically to guarantee constant monitoring of this risk. Adequate training and awareness programmes will also be defined as appropriate.
The Document was communicated to Group Employees in local language and is published in a number of different languages in the Sustainability section of the Pirelli website. For more information, reference is made to the “Compliance” section elsewhere in this chapter.
