The Green Economy is recognised as the driving force for sustainable development and the eradication of poverty.

The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector can make a significant contribution to developing the economy, improving energy efficiency and combating climate change, as demonstrated by several studies and analyses of the ICT industry, recently confirmed by the SMARTer 2030 Report published in 2015 by the Global e-Sustainability Initiative.

In this respect, the Group's approach to the fight against climate change is based on three synergistic levels of action:

  • reducing its own direct and indirect emissions of greenhouse gases;
  • limiting the emissions of other sectors and customers in general by supporting virtualisation and the provisions of services that promote new ways of working, learning, travelling and living;
  • contributing to disseminating a culture based on a correct approach to environmental issues inside and outside the company.
