ESG KPI “Energy Intensity” DT Group KPI

Since 2016, we have reported on the ESG img KPI “Energy Intensity.” In contrast to the existing “Energy Consumption”, the new ESG KPI shows energy consumption in proportion to the transmitted data volumes. Using data volume as a reference parameter makes it possible to create a direct link to the performance of our networks.

Our ambition: decrease KPI

Energy intensity ESG KPI Deutsche Telekom Group

  Data assured by Deloitte. Data is partly based on estimates, assumptions and projections. 

The ESG KPI also takes into account total energy consumption for all energy sources – fuel, gas, district heating and electricity. The data volume is composed of the transmitted IP img data volumes (including Voice over IP, Internet, IP-TV).

a) The value for 2019 was corrected compared to the information published in the previous year's report. The subsequent correction results from late notifications for natural gas consumption at Magyar Telekom Hungary and T-Mobile Austria.
