Energy Management

TIM depends on a constant supply of energy at a competitive cost for its telecommunications networks, stores and administrative buildings. Given its impacts and strategic importance, in addition to being a material topic for the company, energy management is one of the commitments assumed in the 2022-24 ESG Plan, with targets for the transition to renewable energy and emissions reductions.

The 2022-24 Strategic Plan reflects the company’s concern about more efficient energy use for data traffic and assumes the commitment of promoting an 80% increase in energy efficiency by 2025. To reach this target, a TIM is replacing equipment with more efficient models, enhancing its production processes and monitoring consumption by means of an eco-efficiency indicator.

The company has a centralized area which manages energy consumption throughout the operation. Among other attributions, the team responsible plans and monitors consumption and the energy efficiency projects in place.

TIM energy management is based on two fronts: energy efficiency and the pursuit of renewable sources.

See below TIM’s energy consumption data:

SOURCES 2019 2020 2021
Gasoline 8,578 5,989 5,945
Hidroted Ethanol 445 349 582
Diesel – Vehicles 870 525 353
Diesel – Generators, Machines, and other equipment 9,846 12,263 13,226

TOTAL 2,601,452 2,278,948 2,359,219

1 The 2019 and 2020 gasoline and ethanol data have been recalculated to be in line with the volume reported in the Scope 1 GHG Inventory because the fuel from vehicles not owned by the Company corresponds to indirect Scope 3 emissions.
