Mobility.

Number of vehicles.

The total number of vehicles was reduced by 2 percent compared with 2010. Telekom made a significant contribution to this by downsizing its fleet. International subsidiaries, including T-Mobile Macedonia, T-HT Hrvatski Telekom and T-Mobile Poland, also optimized their fleets. See individual subsidiaries in the interactive subsidiary benchmarking tool for details.

We were able to slightly reduce the overall percentage of gas-powered vehicles in our fleet. For example, Deutsche Telekom replaced gas-powered vehicles with more efficient diesel-powered vehicles in Germany. Telekom pointed the way to the future by increasing its stock of electric cars to 137. However, the number of vehicles powered by natural gas was reduced compared to previous years, because we forewent purchasing new natural-gas vehicles due to a lack in supply. We are nonetheless consistently working toward reducing the environmental impact of our need for mobility and promoting low-emissions mobility.

Reporting against standards.

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. By reporting additional vehicle fleet data we fully cover the EN 29 (Environmental impact of transportation) GRI performance indicator. This data is also relevant for criterion 11 (Usage of natural resources) of the German Sustainability Code.

Mileage.

The optimized fleet at different individual subsidiaries, including at T-Mobile Macedonia, T-HT Hrvatski and T-Mobile Poland, and the lower number of fleet vehicles at Telekom in Germany also had an effect on the Group-wide number of miles traveled. In 2011, we recorded a decrease of 7 percent compared with 2010. This decrease mainly results from the reduced number of miles traveled at Telekom in Germany and T-Mobile Poland. Adjusted usage requirements and better driving and usage behavior also contributed to this trend. See individual subsidiaries in the interactive subsidiary benchmarking tool for details.

Fuel consumption.

Group-wide fuel consumption fell by 9 percent in 2011 due to the fleet optimization process at different individual subsidiaries, including T-Mobile Poland, T-Mobile Macedonia and T-HT Hrvatski, and the decreased number of fleet vehicles and the reduced mileage at Telekom in Germany. This decrease can mainly be attributed to reduced fuel consumption at Telekom in Germany and T-Mobile Poland. Adjusted usage requirements and better driving and usage behavior also contributed to this trend. See individual subsidiaries in the interactive subsidiary benchmarking tool for details.

Subsidized season tickets for public transport, in numbers

We offer the discounted season ticket (Jobticket) to our employees at all German Telekom locations in urban areas. The offer was extended to three additional cities in 2011 – Aachen, Magdeburg and Chemnitz. We are planning to offer discounted season tickets to our employees in Hamm, Erfurt, Trier and Kassel as well. We are also planning to begin compensating for greenhouse gas emissions generated by travel with public transportation in 2012 by purchasing emissions certificates.

Reporting against standards.
By providing this information about the use of the discounted season ticket (Jobticket) we partially cover the EN 18 (Initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions) GRI performance indicator as well as the V04-13 (Percentage of services for offsetting carbon emissions) EFFAS indicator. Further, the information is relevant for the criteria 2 (Implementation of the sustainability strategy) and 10 (Innovation and product management) 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).
