Environmental performance indicators.

Indicator Reference Status

EN1 Volume of materials usedicon

This indicator is not relevant to Telekom as the company does not manufacture anything itself.

EN2 Recycled materials icon

Network upgrading
Waste management and disposal

Since Telekom is a service company, this indicator is of low relevance.

EN3 Direct primary energy consumptionicon
EN4 Indirect primary energy consumption icon

Energy
CO2 emissions

A breakdown by renewable and non-renewable energy sources is not relevant for Telekom as the purchase of RECS (Renewable Energy Certificate System) certificates means electricity consumption in Germany is covered—directly or indirectly—entirely from renewable energy sources. In virtually all other countries, the proportion of renewable and non-renewable energy is in line with the electricity mix in the relevant country.

EN7 Initiatives for reducing indirect energy consumptionicon
EN8 Total water withdrawal icon

Water consumption

Water consumption is not linked to provision of services to customers. The main source of water, which is used for sanitary facilities and the watering of outdoor areas, is the public drinking water supply system. No other sources are used.

EN9 Effect of water withdrawal icon

To our knowledge our water consumption has no major impact on the environment.

EN10 Water recycled and reused icon

Water recycling facilities are not installed in significant numbers.

EN11 Land assets in or adjacent to protected areas icon

We financed compensation measures to restore natural habitats under nature conservation regulations In the reporting period.

EN12 Impacts on biodiversity icon

Biodiversity

Internal guidelines regulate potential impacts on biodiversity, such as from the installation of cables or from electromagnetic fields. Aside from this, our business activities only have an indirect impact on biodiversity. We have a greater potential to help protect biodiversity through our climate protection activities.

EN13 Habitats protected or restoredicon

Biodiversity

We financed compensation measures to restore natural habitats under nature conservation regulations In the reporting period.

EN14 Strategies for biodiversity icon
EN15 Endangered species icon

This indicator is not relevant to Telekom.

EN16 Greenhouse gas emissions icon
EN17 Other greenhouse gas emissions icon

Energy management
CO2 emissions

CO2 emissions are calculated in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol. No disclosures beyond CO2 emissions (e.g., on NOx, SOx or other air emissions) are possible.

EN19 Emissions of ozone-depleting substances icon

Telekom is not a manufacturing enterprise. Therefore, this indicator is not relevant to Telekom.

EN20 NOx, SOx and other air emissions icon

Telekom is not a manufacturing enterprise. Therefore, this indicator is not relevant to Telekom.
CO2 emissions are calculated according to the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol. No disclosures beyond CO2 emissions (e.g., on NOx, SOx or other air emissions) are possible.

EN21 Water discharge icon

Water consumption

Since we participate in the public water supply, water withdrawal is nearly equal to water discharge.

EN22 Waste by type and disposal method icon
EN23 Significant spills icon

Since Telekom does not manufacture any products, this indicator is not relevant.

EN24 Waste deemed hazardous under the terms of the Basel Convention icon

Since Telekom does not transport any waste, this indicator is not relevant.

EN25 Impacts of discharges and runoff on biodiversity icon

This indicator is not relevant for Telekom, as no direct discharges of water take place.

EN27 Packaging materials icon

In Germany Telekom takes back 100 percent of its packaging in accordance with the Packaging Ordinance. In its international units, the company deals with packaging materials according to the legislation in the country concerned. Accordingly, a complete description is not possible at this juncture.

EN28 Sanctions for non-compliance with environmental regulationsicon

Annual Report 2011

We have an umbrella certificate according to ISO 14001  since the end of June 2009, which ensures that there are no violations of environmental regulations Group-wide. In the reporting period we have not become aware of any relevant environmental violations.

EN29 Environmental impacts of transport icon

Climate-friendly mobility
Mobility
Climate and environmentally friendly products and services
Energy
CO2 emissions

Logistics and transport are carried out by service providers at Telekom. The environmental impacts of transportation are influenced by the contractual arrangements with the service providers.

EN30 Environmental protection expenditures icon

Environmental management

Total greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to 12,126 metric tons of CO2 were offset in the reporting period.
Currently, no other data on environmental protection expenses and investments is collected.
