Socially Responsible Investment ESG KPI (SRI)

In 2015, around 21 percent of Deutsche Telekom AG's shares were held by investors who take SRI/ESG  criteria into account at least partially in their investment decisions. Around two percent of T-Shares were held by investors who give priority to SRI/ESG  aspects when managing their funds.

The Socially Responsible Investment ESG KPI img indicates the percentage of Deutsche Telekom AG T-shares held by investors who show concern for environmental, social and governance criteria in their investment strategy. Due to annual updating of the calculation criteria, comparisons with the previous year may not always provide conclusive information. (Source: ipreo)

Reporting against standards

The KPI  is relevant for criteria 1 (Strategic Analysis, Strategy and Goals) and 7 (Rules and Processes) of the German Sustainability Code.

In 2015, the T-Share was listed on leading sustainability indexes – and again on the eminent DJSI img World and the DJSI Europe Index from RobecoSAM img. In addition, rating agency oekom singled us out as the world’s best telecommunications company in terms of ecological and social performance in 2015. A top score of 100 points can be achieved in the CDP img Carbon Disclosure Leadership index. We improved slightly once again from 98 to 99 points, thereby gaining a firm foothold as industry leader for the DACH region (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland). Furthermore, we appear on the STOXX Global ESG Leaders Index for the fifth year in succession. In the Sustainalytics rating agency ranking on which this index is based, we emerged as no. 2 in the telecommunications industry worldwide and no. 3 among all German companies in the last financial year. Once again, our share was listed on the FTSE4Good img index and the UN Global Compact img 100 index in the reporting year.
