CR KPI „Energy Consumption“.

Deutsche Telekom measures the Energy Consumption CR KPI as the Monetary Power Efficiency Index (MPEI) in which developments in energy consumption (in MWh) is indicated in relation to revenues (in millions of euros). This value increased by 8 percent in 2011 compared to the previous year. Electricity consumption at the Group only increased by 2 percent. However, consolidated net revenue of the reporting international subsidiaries (94 percent of Group revenue) decreased by 5 percent in the same period.

Data verified by PwC. For detailed audit comments see "DT Group in Germany" and "T-Mobile USA".

Reasons for the increase include constantly growing data volumes as well as the expansion of the data base at some international subsidiaries such as T-Systems UK and T-Systems Iberia. Nevertheless, our considerable efforts to save energy and to increase energy efficiency prevented the increase in energy consumption from being much higher. The Group-wide CR KPI is calculated based on total electricity consumption at the reporting units in relation to the consolidated net revenue of those reporting units.

Reporting against standards.

By reporting our electricity consumption as a source of indirect energy consumption in relation to our revenues for the reporting period, we partially cover the EN 4 GRI performance indicator (Indirect energy consumption) and the E01-01 (Energy consumption, total) EFFAS indicator and we fully cover the E01-02 (Energy consumption, specific) EFFAS indicator. This data is relevant for criteria 7 (Rules and processes), 11 and 12 (Usage of natural resources) of the German Sustainability Code. It is also used for reporting on the Global Compact  principles 7 (Precautionary approach) and 8 (Environmental responsibility).

Total energy consumption.

Overall energy consumption increased slightly by 3 percent compared to the previous year. This can be attributed primarily to heavier use of electricity and fossil fuels as well as to a change in calculation criteria at some international subsidiaries. Reasons for increased energy consumption include the constantly growing data volumes in our networks. The increase in heating energy consumption (fossil fuels) is particularly the result of the long, hard winter experienced by many international subsidiaries in 2011, e.g., T-Mobile USA, which led to an increased use of heating. See individual subsidiaries in the interactive subsidiary benchmarking tool for details.

However, thanks to considerable efforts to conserve energy, we were able to prevent a significant increase in energy consumption. T-Systems Slovakia even achieved a significant reduction in consumption of around 16 percent with its SaveEnergy program. Improved driving behavior and a reduction in the demand for company cars led to a decrease in fleet fuel consumption throughout the Group of some 9 percent.

Reporting against standards.

By reporting our energy consumption by primary sources, we fully cover the EN 3 (Direct energy consumption) and EN 4 (Indirect energy consumption) GRI performance indicators as well as the E01-01 (Energy consumption, total) EFFAS indicator. By reporting fleet energy consumption, we partially cover the EN 29 (Environmental impact of transportation) GRI performance indicator. This data is also relevant for criterion 11 of the German Sustainability Code (Usage of natural resources). It is also used for reporting on the Global Compact  principles 7 (Precautionary approach) and 8 (Environmental responsibility).

Decoupling power consumption and CO2 emissions.

We were able to reduce emissions resulting from our electricity consumption in Germany to zero as was the case in the two previous years, we covered all of our electricity requirements in Germany from renewable energy sources, either directly or indirectly, in 2011 as well. As in the previous years, we purchased RECS (Renewable Energy Certificate System) certificates in an amount of around 3,000 GWh as proof of the amount of energy used from indirect renewable energy sources.

Decoupling Power Consumption and CO2 Emissions of the Deutsche Telekom Group in Germany.

in % (1995 = 100%)
1 Increased procurement of power from cogeneration (CHP) plants
2 Rise in energy consumption for technical reasons
3 Power utilities no longer provide data on share of energy otained from cogeneration
4 Power utilities no longer provide data for their power mix > calculation based on power mix for Germany
5 Purchase of power from renewable energy sources
6 All electricity requirements covered directly or indirectly by renewable resourcesn

Reporting against standards.
By providing this information we partially cover the EN 6 (Initiatives for energy-efficiency and renewable Energy) and EN 18 (Initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions) GRI performance indicator and fully cover the E16-05 (Total alternative energy consumption) EFFAS indicator. Further, the information is relevant for criteria 3 (Strategic Analysis, Strategy and Goals), 11 and 12 (Usage of natural resources) of the German Sustainability Code. It is also used for reporting in accordance with the Global Compact  Principles 7 (Precautionary approach) and 8 (Environmental responsibility).
