Sustainability is
the essential condition
for development

Sustainability today is measured in terms of social development, energy saving and reduction of environmental impact. We can aspire to improve our results in different areas and at the same time contribute to improving the world around us if we inspire all our activities to sustainability in its three dimensions: environmental, social and economic. For this reason we translate our policies into actions, evaluate our activities according to social, environmental and governance ESG criteria, set ourselves objectives and measure our progress over time.

Fifth Sustainability Report

Our principles of CSR

Italtel, which celebrated 100 years of activity in 2021, has always pursued its business objectives according to solid principles of Corporate Social Responsibility, that is, respecting, wherever it operates in Italy and around the world, people's rights, fair competition, safeguarding the environment and protecting health and safety at work.
The ethical principles inspiring our CSR are those sanctioned by the United Nations Global Compact and relate to respect for human rights, the creation of dignified working conditions, environmental protection and business ethics, themes that constitute the reference of our Code of Conduct.
Italtel is fully aware that sustainability is an essential condition for its development and success. In designing and marketing its solutions and services, it has created a business model inspired by corporate social responsibility and has established
Guidelines for Corporate Social Responsibility .

Environment

Our environmental
sustainability actions

In the field of environmental sustainability, the main ongoing challenge is represented by climate change induced by global warming, caused by greenhouse gas emissions due to human activities. We want to responsibly pursue our business objectives and therefore we intend to make every effort to contain CO2 emissions caused directly and indirectly by our economic activities.

Energy
consumption

We disclose our ESG objectives and results through the Group Sustainability Report drawn up according to the GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) Standards, which we publish every year starting from 2019.

Total energy used (2023 vs 2022)

Emissions
of CO2

Transparency is fundamental for a sustainable future, so from 2021 we will disclose data relating to our emissions through CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project), a global non-profit organisation.

GREEN TURNOVER
The share of "green" turnover, i.e. the turnover deriving from products and services that have a positive environmental utility, according to the FTSE Classification System 2.0, was equal to 7% in 2022.

“PLASTIC FREE” PROJECT ITALY - Cumulative reduction of plastic (2023 vs 2019)

CDP - Carbon Disclosure Project

CDP aims to raise awareness among companies and governments of the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, safeguard water resources and protect forests. In 2022 we moved from level D to level C of the CDP rating for the Climate Change questionnaire, which expresses full awareness of the environmental issue and its impacts.

For 2024

The Milan headquarters will be powered entirely by green energy. Specifically, by 2024, emissions are expected to be reduced by about 200 tonCO2e, equal to the CO2 captured by about 2,500 trees

Carbon
footprint

In 2022, we measured our Carbon Footprint i.e., we carried out an inventory of 2021 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions related to the activities of our Italian offices in Milan, Rome and Palermo, and underwent certification by IMQ in accordance with the requirements of UNI EN ISO 14064-1.
We believe that this certification is very important because it brings credibility and guarantee to our greenhouse gas reporting and monitoring processes both in reference to the consolidated Sustainability Report that we publish every year and to the declarations on the subject that are increasingly requested by our customers.

Private and professional
life balance

The policy that the company carries out in each of the countries in which it operates is to pay attention to the balance between private and professional life and has been using smart working as a hybrid working method for years now. Therefore, the arrival of the pandemic in 2020 represented an opportunity to strengthen and extend the hybrid working practices already applied in the company for some time. The company supported this moment of change with adequate training/information paths which made it possible to contain drops in productivity, if not, in some specific cases, to improve and increase it.

With the passing of the pandemic emergency phase, the company continued to work in hybrid mode, on a voluntary basis and up to 50% of working time.

Governance

We operate everywhere in the
respect for our principles
of Corporate Governance

In particular, we prevent and combat corruption and all forms of illegality by every means; our actions are guided in all circumstances by loyalty and honesty as we want to maintain and increase the esteem and respect of our stakeholders and be a successful, competitive, healthy and sustainable company.

The Legislative Decree 231/01 regulates the liability of legal persons, companies and associations also without legal personality. The purpose of the Decree is to strike companies and associations for crimes committed in the interest of the institutions themselves by directors, and persons subject to their direction or supervision (criminal liability).
The criminal liability of the company finds, however, a form of exemption in paragraph 6 of the Decree when the company demonstrates, among other things, that:

  • It has adopted and has effectively implemented a “Model of organization, management and control” suitable to prevent the commission of crimes included in the Decree;
  • It has committed to an “Organism” with autonomous powers of initiative and control the task of supervising operations, effectiveness and compliance of the Model, as well as updating it.
Index of 231 Model

Italtel S.p.A. therefore adopted a corporate governance system to meet the needs of clearness, transparency and ethics required by the market and shareholders in managing of the business.
The company has consistently adapted its internal control system and continuously strives to maintain it suitable to prevent the commission, by the personnel of the Company, its consultants and partners, of the offenses included in the D. Lgs. 231/01 and subsequent amendments.
For this purpose Italtel S.p.A. adopted since November 5, 2002 a Model of Organisation, Management and Control and appointed the Supervisory Body (SB) to supervise its implementation and adequacy. To implement such a Model the relevant company functions in agreement with the SB adopted specific protocols in order to prevent the commission of the crimes included in the Decree. There are two kinds of protocol :

  • general, that recall the basic principles defined in the Model;
  • specific for areas or activities at risk of crime, which contain a concise description of the process and activities covered by the Protocol, the offenses that could be committed, the applicable control elements, the specific rules of behaviour, the information flows towards the SB.

Rating of Legality

The Italian Antitrust Authority (Autorità Garante della Concorrenza e del Mercato – AGCM) has renewed the Rating of Legality to Italtel S.p.A., held since 2015, assigning it the highest score: three “stars”.
Italtel S.p.A. always pursues its business goals in full compliance with principles and rules of honesty, integrity and transparency.

Finally, in the last years, Italtel S.p.A. wanted to give greater visibility about the concreteness of its initiatives through a set of indicators, illustrated in a specific section of its financial report.
