ESG indexes and ratings

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 October 2021 TIM has joined the new MIB® ESG index launched by Euronext and Borsa Italiana.

The new basket is dedicated to blue chip companies listed in Italy who adopt the best environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices.

The composition of the index is based on the analysis of ESG criteria by Vigeo Eiris (V.E.), a Moody’s ESG Solutions company, which assesses the ESG performance of issuers.

The methodology underlying the index,  provides a ranking of the 40 best companies on the basis of ESG criteria, chosen from the 60 most liquid Italian companies, excluding those involved in activities that are not compatible with ESG investments.

In January 2022, TIM has been confirmed for the second time in Bloomberg Gender Equality Index (GEI), an international index that measures companies' performance regarding gender equality issues and the quality and transparency of their public reporting. 

The presence confirms the commitment and performance in the realm of promotion and integration of gender diversity throughout the Company’s entire value chain.

In November 2021 TIM was confirmed for the eighteenth consecutive year in the Dow Jones Sustainability Europe and World Indices  of S&P Global.

During the phase of gathering information and setting out response strategies for the Dow Jones, more than 100 persons from almost all TIM areas are involved: the broad scope of the topics covered – often very different from one other – means that almost the entire company is involved.

TIM received the important award Bronze Sustainability Yearbook Award 2022

Over 7,500 companies assessed, only 700 companies made it in the Yearbook with top scores. All companies receiving a total score of at least 54 and whose score is within a range of 5% to 10% of the industry’s top-performing company’s score, receive the Bronze Class Award. For TIM, it is an important milestone thanks to its inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index World and the Dow Jones Sustainability Index Europe, which demonstrates the Group’s increasing commitment to sustainability issues.

Following the July 2021 review TIM has satisfied the requirements for being confirmed as a constituent of the FTSE4Good Index Series in which the company has been included since its inception, in 2003.

In September 2021, TIM has been confirmed one of the top 100 companies in the Refinitiv Diversity and Inclusion Index, top 3 in Italy and in the worldwide TLC sector.

The Index, launched in 2016, ranks the top 100 publicly traded companies globally with the most diverse and inclusive workplaces through environmental, social and governance data. TIM's inclusion in the Diversity and Inclusion Index confirms the Group's commitment to equal opportunities, non-discrimination and inclusion, issues that TIM considers to be strategic for improving business.

In 2021, 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. The result achieved by TIM means for investors strong environmental awareness, advanced sustainability governance and leadership to address climate change.    

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.
