On December 1, Synthos received the prestigious “2021 Supplier Award” from global tire manufacturer Pirelli. With these awards, Pirelli recognizes companies that distinguish themselves in making Pirelli’s supply chain even more sustainable, innovative and of the highest possible quality.
Since 2011, the Pirelli Group has led the ranking of its best suppliers. Each year, the nine best companies are selected from over 14,000 suppliers throughout the global chain.
The main criteria for the 2021 Supplier Awards were care for the environment through an increasingly sustainable supply chain – with lower CO2 emissions, high quality, innovation, speed and global presence. This year, Synthos was again among the few selected companies recognized by Pirelli as a true business partner with shared values. Our company was honored in the Performance category.
“Pirelli is helping to set the standard for a sustainable supply chain across the tire industry and we are proud to be recognized at the 2021 Supplier Awards,” said Matteo Marchisio, Business Unit Director Synthos Rubbers. “Synthos believes that collaboration is essential to move in the green direction and has engaged in several partnerships to help the performance tire market to achieve its goal of becoming at least 80% sustainable by 2045.
