For the third consecutive year, Pirelli is the global leader in its segment (Autoparts and Tires) in the Dow Jones sustainability indices. This is the outcome of the 2009 review by the SAM Group of the Dow Jones sustainability indices, in which Pirelli continues to be included both in the DJSI WORLD index and in the European DJSI STOXX index.
Within its segment, the Pirelli Group – the only Italian group that has achieved worldwide leadership – obtained a global rating of 88 percent (plus 11 percent with respect to 2008) compared with a segment average of 48 percent.
Exactly as in previous years, for the Autoparts & Tires segment, only four companies were featured in the DJSI World index: Pirelli & C, Denso Corp, Michelin and Johnson Control Inc., while only two are included in the DJSI STOXX: Pirelli and Michelin.
SAM (Sustainable Asset Management) is the Swiss ethical rating agency that carries out the process of selection of companies for admission to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, a global index that brings together the best companies in the field of economic, financial, environmental and social sustainability, the result of collaboration between the Dow Jones New York stock exchange index, STOXX Ltd. and the SAM Group. Pirelli was selected and added to the Dow Jones Sustainability STOXX (DJSI STOXX) index for the first time in 2002 and has been included for years now also in the global Dow Jones Sustainability World Index.
