CEO Enrico Parazzini officially signs up to the ten principles

Telecom Italia Media has signed up to the ten principles of the “Global Compact”, the international drive unveiled in 1999 by UN Secretary General Kofi Annan during the Davos World Economic Forum, and launched in 2000 as an appeal to companies, labour organizations and society as a whole to promote voluntary social and environmental initiatives within organizations and for the benefit of the world community.

In a letter to Kofi Annan, Telecom Italia Media pledges to apply and promote the Global Compact principles inside and outside the company and in the community where the enterprise operates. 

Telecom Italia Media’s full acceptance of the Global Compact principles, following Telecom Italia and TIM’s example, confirms the Telecom Italia Group’s commitment to fostering respect of human rights and labour standards, and its desire to protect the environment and support the fight against corruption. More than 1400 major corporations around the globe have signed the Global Compact. This number is growing every day, as more and more follow the lead of these “sustainable” companies.

The Telecom Italia Group has already incorporated observance of the Global Compact’s principles into its everyday operations, as reported in the Sustainability Report in Group listed company Reports on operations. Enhancement drives and projects also featured in the company’s  own  Plans.
