This year once again, for the fourteenth consecutive year, TIM is included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices World (DJSI World) and Europe (DJSI Europe).

The other Italian companies listed in both categories are Atlantia, Intesa Sanpaolo, Saipem and Snam.

Competition in the telecommunications sector for admission to the indexes has been, as always, very high, and in fact the average score of TLC companies is decidedly higher than other ‘industries.’
Our European peers listed in both categories (World and Europe) are KPM, Telefonica and Deutsche Telekom. The list of operators in the World index includes NTT DOCOMO, Taiwan Mobile, the Republic of Korea operators SK Telecom and KT, as well as the Canadian company TELUS.
This is a very important result for the Group, only made possible thanks to the strong team spirit that united everyone around sustainability issues, confirming their integration within the corporate strategy.
Dow Jones Sustainability Indices represent an important recognition that demonstrates the Group's commitment to integrating sustainability within its corporate strategy, making it a vehicle for the creation of economic and social value.

Launched in 1999, the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices are the first global indices to describe the financial performance and more generally the situation of the "sustainable” companies in the world.
In order to be admitted to the Dow Jones sustainability indices, companies are subject to an evaluation process performed by specialized rating agencies. 

This evaluation analyses the financial and non-financial performances of the various companies on the basis of numerous general and sector-based criteria, the most important of which are:

- relations with customers and people throughout the Group
- innovation and research
- risk management
- strategies relating to climate change
- the supply chain
- analysis of the social and environmental impacts of the business.
An ever increasing number of investors take parameters that are not exclusively financial into consideration in the choice of their portfolio, therefore favouring ‘sustainable’ companies judged to be less risky over the medium to long term with respect to companies that do not meet the environmental, social and governance requirements.
