ESG KPI “Energy Intensity” DT Group in Germany 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.
