The Corporate Shared Value model embraced by TIM in 2014, aims to help create shared value thanks to the production and implementation of projects that generate economic value for the Group (Business Value) and for society (Social Value).

The aim is to enable a digital ecosystem that meets not only social needs but also those of the Italian Digital Agenda. In fact, after an initial analysis of major global trends and priority needs for Italy, as an operator in the ICT sector TIM has selected effective solutions in areas where it can provide a real response. 

In 2016, the Corporate Shared Value function started an analysis of TIM's contribution to the achievement of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the UN for 2030. Following this analysis, 9 sustainable development goals resulted most relevant for TIM and consequently the material themes for the Company and the relevant stakeholders were redefined.

The method: study and analysis

The analysis, updated in 2016, took into account the objectives of the Italian Digital Agenda, the Sustainable Development Goals set by the UN for 2030 and several national and international studies, including:

  • the document on “Benessere Equo e Solidale” (Fair Wellbeing) in Italy produced by ISTAT (Italian National Institute of Statistics);
  • the document “Better Life Initiative” by’ OSCE;
  • Country Report Italy 2016 – European Commission
  • Europe 2020 Strategy by the European Commission;
  • the document on Global Risks 2015 by the World Economic Forum;
  • the Future State report by KPMG;
  • Digital Megatrends 2015 by Oxford Economics;
  • Millennium Development Goals 2015 by the United Nations.

The Culture of Corporate Shared Value

Fully integrating sustainability within the company also means encouraging the spread of the Culture of Corporate Shared Value (CSV) throughout the entire company set-up. Hence, the main areas of the Group have been engaged in supporting the implementation of the CSV model, from identifying areas of intervention to monitoring the results of projects.
