Number of vehicles

The total number of vehicles at our company increased year over year by around 5 percent. This can particularly be attributed to the inclusion of three additional national companies in the reporting process. The number of vehicles would have decreased by around 3 percent without inclusion of these companies. The DT Group in Germany, Makedonski Telekom and Slovak Telekom, in particular, were able to considerably reduce the number of vehicles in their fleets. For detailed comments on the figures for each individual company, please refer to the interactive benchmarking tool.

 

The total number of natural gas-powered vehicles remained unchanged. Insufficient manufacturer offers limited our ability to expand this vehicle category. Regardless of this, we continue to focus on alternative and fuel-efficient engines - which of course must also be financially viable - when purchasing new company cars and service vehicles.

Logistics and transport are carried out by service providers at Deutsche Telekom. The environmental impacts of transportation are influenced by the contractual arrangements with service providers. By reporting our vehicle data, we fully cover the G4-EN30 (Environmental impact of transport) GRI indicator. This data is also relevant for criterion 11 (Usage of natural resources) of the German Sustainability Code.

Mileage increased 4 percent in connection with the larger number of vehicles. This increase can primarily be attributed to the inclusion of three additional national companies in the reporting process. Mileage would have decreased by around 2 percent without inclusion of these companies.

In 2014, 23,904 employees of the Deutsche Telekom Group in Germany used a discount season ticket provided by their employer to commute in 30 public transportation systems.

We offer regional discount season tickets (monthly or annually) to our employees at many of our German Deutsche Telekom sites, especially in high-density population areas. The offer encourages our employees to use climate-friendly public transportation and helps them keep their commuting costs down.

By reporting on the use of discount season tickets, we partially cover the V04-13 (Percentage of services to reduce impact on climate) EFFAS indicator. This data is also relevant for criteria 2 (Implementation of the sustainability strategy) and 10 (Innovation and product management) of the German Sustainability Code. It is also used for reporting on the Global Compact  principles 7 (Precautionary approach) and 8 (Promoting environmental responsibility).
