Shared Value culture
Fully integrating sustainability within the company also means encouraging the spread of shared value culture. This is why the main areas of the Group are involved in various ways in identifying the priority areas of intervention and working together to measure the results achieved through the TIM Shared Value Model.
Validation of our measurement model
In 2016, the company decided to validate its measurement system by subjecting the TIM Shared Value Model to assessment by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), the Group’s auditor. PwC was able to develop its analysis of the 3 areas that make up the model; digitisation, connectivity and social innovation, environmental protection and digital culture, which are examined according to six key dimensions: certainty of measurement, reporting framework, integrity of information, consistency, coherence of performance indicators and external validation.
The conclusions of the audit by PwC are given in the Report issued and attached to the Sustainability Report 2016.
