CDLI Italy selects, from the companies listed on the FTSE MIB, FTSE Italia Small and Mid Cap, those that have shown a particularly pro-active approach to the disclosure of information on climate change.
With a total score of 93 over 100, Telecom Italia is therefore one of the 11 leading companies in the field of sustainable innovation in 2014.
“The recognition received from CDLI Italy confirms the constant commitment of Telecom Italia to analysing and carefully assessing its own impact on climate change and in the development of technological and management solutions, for its own use and for use by its customers, and of strategies to enable it to be constantly reduced, through its constant search for energy efficiency and the use of sources of alternative energy” stated Marcella Logli, Head of Corporate Social Responsibility of the Telecom Italia Group and Secretary General of the Telecom Italia Foundation to the States General of the Green Economy taking place in Rimini as part of Ecomondo 2014, one of the most important Italian events in environmental sustainability.
