2022 Corporate Responsibility Report

Certified health, safety and environmental management: almost all workstations covered

Our integrated management system for Health, Safety and Environment (HSE img) contributes at Group level to making sustainability a component of all our business processes and of our employees’ everyday lives.

It helps us to systematically plan, implement, and improve our processes in the areas mentioned. This promotes the health of our employees and also has a positive effect on their performance. It also helps us to bid on new projects in which potential commercial customers require their suppliers to provide HSE certificates.

Our Group-level HSE management system is covered by an umbrella certificate based on the international standards ISO 45001(formerly OHSAS 18001 img) for occupational health and safety and ISO 14001 img for environmental management. For some units, it also covers international standard ISO 9001 img for quality management.

Some of the national companies are not covered by an umbrella certificate because they have their own certifications, some of which are even more comprehensive. This is the case in Greece, for example, where the OTE Group has its own integrated management system. In addition to the standards named above, it also covers the international standards ISO 50001 img for energy management and ISO 27001 for data security.

All of our employees in Germany have ISO 14001- and ISO 45001-certified workstations. As a result of organizational changes within the Group, changes were made to the umbrella certification method. Certificate coverage remains at the same level as in the previous year, however, with international coverage of 98 percent of employees.

  • Limited Liability Company Deutsche Telekom GBS RUS, Russia
  • Limited Liability Company Deutsche Telekom IT RUS, Russia
  • Limited Liability Company T-Systems RUS, Russia
