Telecom Italia has been recognized leader in the Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI Italy) prepared by the CDP, a non-profit organization among the most important in the world engaged in the evaluation of the effectiveness of the strategies adopted by companies to combat climate change and the completeness and transparency of their communication to stakeholders of objectives, initiatives and results.
Telecom Italia, the only company in the telecommunications sector included in the ranking, has indeed obtained the maximum score of 100/100.
The result has been announced today in Milan during the presentation of the CDP Climate Change Italy Report 2015 focusing on how climate change is addressed and managed by the 100 largest Italian listed companies.
Telecom Italia's commitment towards investors and stakeholders in the climate change challenge can be seen in the integration of environmental sustainability targets in the business plan and in the new Corporate Shared Value model, an intervention program based on the creation of shared value with the communities in which the Telecom Italia Group operates.
2015 is a crucial year for the achievement of a global agreement on climate change that will be the focus of the twenty-first Conference of the Parties (COP21) in Paris. The agreements that will be signed during this event will initially involve governments, but consequently also companies, cities and investors, whose commitments will be vital to achieve the new goals.
