Care for human health and the environment

All raw materials and auxiliary products used at Group operating units are carefully analysed before they can be used. The purpose is to identify any criticalities that substances or compounds might pose, thereby posing a risk for human health and/or the environment.

The process adopted by Pirelli extends the requirements and restrictions imposed by European standards – e.g. Regulation (EC) no. 1272/2008 on the new harmonised classification and labelling system, Regulation (EC) no. 1907/2006 known as the “REACh” Regulation – to all countries where it operates.

Monitoring of the producers and suppliers of raw materials used by the Group continues, especially as part of registration of these substances by Producers / Distributors / Importers pursuant to the “REACh” Regulation.
