The data contained in our sustainability report concern significant impacts, compared to economy, environment and society, of TIM on its stakeholders.

Legislative Decree 254, which transposes European Directive 2014/95/EU regarding the disclosure of non-financial information, came into force in Italy in 2017. TIM comes within the scope of the new legislation and is therefore required to draw up a consolidated non-financial report containing all the information identified by the Decree. It does this through the Sustainability Report, with which the company has undertaken over the last 20 years to inform its stakeholders of the performance and results achieved in the field of sustainability.
This year, in addition to the material topics that emerged from the materiality analysis, the report focuses on the 5 topics required by the decree: environmental, social, personnel-related, respect for human rights and fight against active and passive corruption.
Furthermore, for each topic, based on the decree, the non-financial report contains a minimum set of information:
  • Environmental

    Environmental

    Use of energy resources, distinguishing between those coming from renewable and non-renewable sources, and use of water resources Greenhouse gas emissions and the emission of pollutants into the atmosphere

  • Social

    Social

    Current and predictable impact on the environment, health and safety Management of relations with communities, customers and suppliers and the main initiatives and projects

  • Personnel-related

    Personnel-related

    Social and personnel management aspects, including actions to ensure gender equality, measures to implement the relevant conventions of international and supranational organisations, and the methods used to engage in social dialogue

  • Respect for human rights

    Respect for human rights

    Respect for Human Rights, the measures taken to prevent the violation of Human Rights and the actions implemented to prevent discriminatory actions and attitudes

  • Fight against active and passive corruption

    Fight against active and passive corruption

    The fight against corruption, both active and passive, indicating the tools used for this purpose

In 2017, we again conducted a detailed analysis, comparing the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the 169 detailed targets with the material topics, activities and services developed consistently by the Group. We identified the 11 sustainable development objectives that are most relevant to TIM, the ones where the company believes it can make a major contribution to their achievement through its business activity. SDGs represent common objectives in key areas to ensure the sustainable development of the planet, for example ending hunger and poverty, the protection and conservation of water resources, the production of clean energy, raising awareness about responsible and conscious consumption, promoting access to healthcare and education, and reducing economic and gender inequality.
Finally, in 2017, the Sustainability Report was drawn up in accordance with the process suggested by the AA1000APS principles (inclusiveness, materiality and responsiveness) and according to the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards, “comprehensive” option. In order to achieve this crucial result, TIM collected about 500 quality and quantity indicators (Key Performance Indicator – KPI) in order to measure and report on the company's risks and performance.
The KPIs are defined on the basis of:
•         the analysis of the GRI, an international organisation which develops universally applicable guidelines for the drafting of sustainability reports;
•         the demands received from stakeholders;
•         the questionnaires sent out by the leading rating agencies for the purpose of admission to the stock market sustainability indexes;
•         the experience the company has gained in the sustainability field over more than 20 years.

Global Reporting Initiative

Founded in 1997 by CERES  (Coalition for Environmentally Responsible Economy), the Global Reporting Initiative has been the leading global body in charge of defining the indicators and contents for reporting sustainability performance for many years now. In 2013, 82% of the Fortune Global 250 (G250 - the sample of 250 major companies/groups for turnover in the Fortune Global 500 ranking of 2013 in 14 economic sectors of 30 different countries) has drawn up the sustainability report in accordance with the GRI SR Guidelines.
