Is Telekom's social commitment not just a fig leave to polish the Group's image?


Telekom not only provides the necessary ICT infrastructure but also helps give as many people as possible access to the information and knowledge society through its many different activities. Under the motto, "We take responsibility," we have launched numerous initiatives and have sponsored non-profit organizations to live up to our responsibility to society. The creation of the engagement@telekom platform in 2011 for connecting social organizations and initiatives was a significant impetus.

For Deutsche Telekom, taking responsibility for the civil society of which it is part is an ethical obligation.

How can we maintain the welfare state against a backdrop of excessively debt-heavy public budgets? What are the responsibilities of politicians, companies and each individual?
