Strategy, Goals and Report

Sustainability is one of Fastweb values and it drives our business decisions. We believe that Sustainability means value creation, development of people and of the community, protection of the environment.

We have analysed our activities, we have compared them with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the sustainable development objectives defined by the United Nations at a global level, and we have identified 9 objectives that we can contribute to achieve thanks to, for instance, infrastructure development and digital innovation solutions, the dissemination of digital competences and digital adoptions and the reduction of environmental impacts from our activities.

Fastweb for the country

Our initiatives and our projects play a key role in the acceleration of Italy’s digitalisation. Our goal is to eliminate the digital divide in Italy, close the gap in terms of connection speed and quality of services between large cities and small towns, making gigabit connectivity available to all families and businesses by 2025.

We also want to combine our infrastructural vocation with the immediacy and ease of use allowed by advanced digital platforms and offer connectivity with the best performance anywhere and at any time, a simple and fast customer experience, maximum IT security and data protection.
