- TIM strategic relevance
The Company stands as a digital ecosystem “enabler”, connecting companies, government bodies and local communities, so as to create positive synergies for development. The contribution the Group makes towards growth in the sectors in which it operates doesn’t stop at infrastructure projects but ranges from digital solutions for government local bodies to cloud services for businesses, digital platforms for healthcare, applications for people with disabilities to technologies for reducing energy use by cities and companies.
- The economic effects of broadband and ultrabroadband networks on growth and employment
- Tim’s commitment to minimising the negative impacts of creating new networks
[G4-EC7b] The creation of fixed and mobile network infrastructure can cause disruption for local communities (the work needed to lay fibre-optic cables can create noise and traffic). TIM mitigates these negative aspects by using innovative excavation and cable laying techniques, including the digging of micro-trenches instead of the normal ducts and using innovative materials.
- Presence of the Group in Brazil
[G4-EC7a] A focus on innovation and investments in new infrastructure and technology also characterise TIM’s action in Brazil, a country where the Group has been operating since 1997 through its subsidiary TIM Brasil and which is the Group’s second biggest market.
