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

GRI-2016

This year too, the Sustainability Report was awarded, by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the certificate of conformity with the principles of the G4 Standard, “Comprehensive option” (which is the most comprehensive level of disclosure provided for by the GRI guidelines).

Founded in 1997 by the CERES (Coalition for Environmentally Responsible Economies) for years now the Global Reporting Initiative has been the leading global body in charge of defining the indicators and content for reporting sustainability performance.

To achieve this important result, TIM has collected about 500 quantitative and qualitative indicators (Key Performance Indicators - KPIs).

In 2015 as well, the materiality analysis process was conducted according to the GRI G4 requirements, in order to identify topics that are most relevant to the socio-environmental and economic impacts generated by business activities both inside and outside the organisation. To this end, the stakeholder engagement process was enriched by the organisation of a multi-stakeholder forum allowing the Company to receive contributions that consider the various perspectives while at the same time providing an integrated and mediated vision of the various expectations and priorities. The assignment of priorities among the topics emerged, led to the identification of the material issues to be disclosed.

The Corporate Shared Value strategy and the 3 strategic areas

During 2015, the Company developed Corporate Social Responsibility towards the concept of Corporate Shared Value (CSV), with the aim of linking economic and financial results to the social progress created by responding to the needs expressed by the sectors in which the Group operates.

In particular, through the definition of the CSV model - TIM Shared Value Model -  three areas of intervention and measurement were identified, and the results of the materiality matrix were confirmed. The Report  was therefore structured on the so-defined following areas:

  • digitisation, connectivity and social innovation
  • environmental protection
  • digital culture

The first 17 projects measured using the TIM Shared Value Model in Italy and Brazil were inserted into these three areas.
