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 analysed our activities, we compared them with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the sustainable development objectives defined by the United Nations at the 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 digitalization process of Italy, families, companies and public administration. Our objective is to become the best convergent operator in the Italian market, making available to our customers ultra-performing connections wherever they may be located. We are committed to delivering ultra-speed connectivity not only to big cities, but also to medium-small sized cities through one of the largest roll-out combined with fixed and mobile networks at the European levels (FTTx, 5G Mobile, 5G Fixed Wireless Access).
