To improve the product stewardship profile at the Company level, products/services marketed by TIM are also examined under the following criteria:

  • health and safety of consumers;
  • labelling of products and services;
  • marketing communications;
  • respect for privacy;
  • compliance with applicable regulations;
  • environmental impact of the product.

Marketed products are subject to a technical test aimed at ensuring their conformity with European directives and national laws, in particular:

  • the EU regulations on the protection and safety of customers in using the equipment;
  • the RoHS regulation which prohibits the use of certain substances in electrical and electronic equipment;
  • the WEEE regulation on the disposal of electrical and electronic products at the end of their life cycle;
  • European regulations nos. 1275/2008 and 278/2009 which implement the EuP (Energy-using Products) directive for terminals and their respective external power supplies.

TIM eco-friendly

In order to improve the environmental efficiency of products offered to private and business customers alike, attention has to be paid to their energy aspects, optimising consumption while meeting the needs of the services delivered and applying "Design For Environment" rules that reduce their environmental impact, particularly during the production phase and the end-of-life management of equipment. It is the responsibility of the ICT sector, and therefore also of TIM, to consider these aspects, focusing on research and development to create products with a low environmental impact throughout their entire life cycle.

At the end of the 1990s, TIM launched a series of internal research and development activities to build terminals with a reduced environmental impact.

Pursuing and expanding this logic, the TIM Green logo has been created, renamed TIM eco-friendly in 2015, to identify both TIM's environmental protection initiatives and projects and eco-friendly products.

For products and initiatives that bear this logo, information is provided about the features and specific solutions adopted, as a result of which their eco-friendliness and/or environmental benefit can be demonstrated. In the case of products, this information appears in the environmental statement drawn up in accordance with the UNI EN ISO 14021 standard, as well as in the sustainability section of the telecomitalia.com website, where information can also be found about the "eco-friendly" features of initiatives and projects.

The TIM eco-friendly range includes dedicated products for businesses and consumers developed in cooperation with suppliers.

The electricity savings also translate into an equivalent reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. The entire TIM eco-friendly range of products are designed using eco-design criteria. The casing and packaging are made using uniform, recycled and/or recyclable materials.
