The organisational basis of sustainability governance is represented by the Sustainability Steering Committee, which is also responsible for equal opportunity issues and policy. This body, which was formed by the Chairman at the beginning of 2004 and is chaired personally by him, is responsible for setting policy and guiding the advancement of sustainability throughout the Group. Then, the organisational structure is made up of a Group Sustainability and Risk Governance Department, and comprises the Group Sustainability and Equal Opportunities Office, and the Sustainability & Equal Opportunities Country Managers, covering all Group affiliates. The Board of Directors of the parent company Pirelli & C. approves the Sustainability Report, as well as the sustainability strategies and plans that are presented to the market together with the Group Industrial Plan.
The Sustainability Report is approved by the Italian listed Parent Company on a voluntary basis, since it is presently not mandated by any statutory or regulatory obligations. In regard to risks and opportunities, including environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategic and governance risks, the Board of Directors of the parent company Pirelli & C. examines and approves the Annual Risk Assessment and periodically monitors its implementation.
