Why does the Telekom fleet have so few cars with alternative drives?

Climate & environment.

The ICT industry plays a key role when it comes to curbing climate change. Deutsche Telekom discussed this fact at the United Nations' COP  17 climate protection conference, which was held in December 2011 in Durban, emphasizing the necessity of setting specific, mandatory targets.

Germany—and therefore Telekom—needs to take on a pioneering role in doing so. We are developing our products and services in line with these criteria, making it possible for our customers to engage in green consumption with our innovative ICT services and solutions. We are also investing heavily in the expansion of a climate and environmentally friendly network infrastructure.

What's more, we take a host of measures to continuously reduce the impacts that our own business activities have on the climate and environment. Reducing the Group's CO2 emissions in Germany is a focal point of our climate protection strategy. During the reporting period we concentrated on implementing our climate protection strategy throughout Europe.

Climate protection calls for fundamental rethinking of approaches in the worlds of business and society.

We think that we already know how to fight climate change. Are we right or do we need a much broader vision? What is Telekom's vision? What measurable contribution is Telekom making to the fight against climate change?
