Customer promise

Protecting the environment, improving energy efficiency and offering services that reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants are the main intervention policies adopted by the Telecom Italia Group to promote sustainable development in its areas of influence. The specific actions taken are therefore aimed at reducing its environmental impacts and offering technological solutions aimed at individuals, businesses and Public Administration for the creation of a more inclusive and viable digital society.

Telecom Italia is attentive to the needs expressed by stakeholders interested in environmental protection and with them it has developed various communication channels, including a multi-stakeholder forum organized in October 2015. This tested method of listening and involvement reinforced the understanding of the demands and priorities of stakeholders on environmental matters and gathered contributions on possible development areas.

The Companies of the Group pay particular attention to the fight against climate change, evidenced by continuous and significant investments in research on energy efficiency and the extensive use of energy generated by renewable sources. Telecom Italia is also deeply convinced it can play a key role, together and in synergy with other sectors of the economy, in facilitating the transition towards a low carbon emission economy.

The environmental strategy of the Group's companies is founded on the following principles:

  • optimising the use of energy sources and other natural resources;
  • constantly seeking to improve environmental performance by reducing negative impacts and increasing positive ones;
  • adopting procurement policies that take environmental issues into account;
  • disseminating a culture that promotes a correct approach to environmental issues.

In order to ensure the effective and sustainable management of operational processes which have particular environmental impacts, Telecom Italia has equipped itself with an Environmental Management System (Sistema di Gestione Ambientale - SGA) which is ISO14001 certified.

The certification of the Energy Management System, based on ISO 50001 standard, was also obtained for the Rome Parco de’ Medici offices and the Bologna Corticella premises.

In addition to the ISO 50001 certification, the Bologna Corticella site also achieved the ISO 14064 certification. The main aim of the ISO 14064 standard is to provide organisations with tools and procedures based on a scientific and systematic approach, in order to quantify, monitor, record and validate or verify inventories of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions or projects related to cutting these emissions.
