Sustainability indexes

Sustainability indexes are stock indexes in which securities are selected not only on the basis of economic-financial parameters but also in the light of social and environmental criteria. The selection process is carried out by specialised agencies that assess companies on the basis of publicly available information or questionnaires, taking account of opinions expressed by media and stakeholders. Inclusion in these indexes is of strategic importance to companies, both for the positive repercussions on their reputation and for the fact that, in addition to the pension funds and ethical funds, an ever increasing number of investors favour sustainable companies, considering them to be less risky and more promising in the medium to long term.

Taking part in the process of evaluation is, moreover, a timely moment for reflection within the company on the results achieved. The suggestions of the rating agencies at the end of the process are taken into consideration when planning improvement actions in the future.

In 2019, once again TIM submitted its environmental information to CDP’s climate change program.

TIM has been placed in the B band according to the scoring methodology based on four bands (D to A) introduced last year by CDP. Achieving a B band means that TIM has demonstrated a high level of disclosure, strong awareness and efficient and well organized management of climate change related issues.

CDP is an international, not-for-profit organization providing the only global system for companies and cities to measure, disclose, manage and share vital environmental information.

In 2019 CDP invited the 100 largest stock-listed companies in Italy to respond to the CDP climate change questionnaire on behalf of 525 institutional investors, representing  US$ 96 trillion in assets.

TIM defined a corporate strategy based on the TIM Shared Value Model. The culmination of this process is the integration of the sustainability approach, including our strong commitment to contributing to the fight against climate change, into our corporate strategy for creating economic and social value.
