Fourth in 2010, Telecom Italia obtained victory by scoring 82 out of 100 (13 more than in 2010) for the Sustainability Section of the website www.telecomitalia.com. As highlighted by the  research, beyond informing stakeholders on its non-financial performance, the Group has been able to establish an interactive dialogue  by means of “avoicomunicare” dedicated blog (www.avoicomunicare.it).

The very size, level of detail and update of the website Sustainability Section allowed Telecom Italia to take third place in the classification at European level, obtaining highest rating both for the Environmental and Social Sections of the analysis.
