Sustainability

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is a plan of action developed in September 2015 by the 193 Member States of the UN. It is a tangible commitment these countries have made for the planet, people and future generations. The framework includes 17 SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) and 169 connected targets that aim to put an end to poverty, fight social inequality, deal with socio-economic development in general, face climate change and build a more peaceful society.

At INWIT, we firmly believe that developing a plan to contribute to the sustainable development of our society and our planet must involve improved internal conditions, which can lay the foundation for a culture of sustainability, allowing for the creation of long-term value. For this reason, we worked hard and invested in our people. Our efforts in this area have been recognized in a study  published by Refinitiv, “2020 Diversity & Inclusion Top 100 Index”, which puts us in 22nd place in the world, and fourth in Italy, for inclusivity in the work environment.

Only after acting internally did we feel ready for the next steps, which will see us involved on several fronts. 2020 is a year full of projects, and several activities have seen or will see processes typical of an approach to modern and sustainable business:

  • A Sustainability Plan has been developed for 2021-2023, approved by the Board of Directors.
  • A process of stakeholder engagement has been initiated, to share where we want to go and how we want to get there with stakeholders.
  • We started activities that will lead to the publication of INWIT’s first Integrated Report, on the year 2020 and drafted based on criteria of the IR Framework.

We have decided to integrate all-around sustainability into our business, knowing that this is the right path to create extra value in the long run.        

In order to strengthen and accelerate this path towards a sustainable business model, we are committed to supporting and implementing the 10 principles of the United Nations Global Compact relating to human rights, labor standards, protection of environment and fight against corruption. By joining the Global Compact, we are also committed to promoting the broader Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.
