Mobility.

Number of vehicles.

The total number of vehicles was reduced by 5 percent compared with 2011. T‐Mobile USA contributed to this result considerably by reducing its fleet of gasoline‐powered vehicles. Slovak Telekom also optimized its fleet. Detailed comments on each subsidiary’s data are included in the interactive subsidiary benchmarking tool.

Number of Vehicles Deutsche Telekom Group.

 

The total number of diesel‐powered vehicles in our fleet decreased by around 6 percent. This can be attributed to the fact that many international subsidiaries reduced the number of diesel‐powered company cars and service vehicles in their fleets. The total number of vehicles with alternative fuel powertrains decreased significantly by around 22 percent. This can be attributed to a strong decrease in the number of our natural gas‐powered vehicles resulting from poor choice offered by the manufacturers in the range of vehicles required by us and continued sluggish progress in expanding the gas station infrastructure. We are nonetheless consistently working toward reducing the environmental impact of our need for mobility and promoting low‐emissions mobility.

Fuel consumption.

Group‐wide fuel consumption also decreased by around 3 percent due to the fleet reductions implemented at many international subsidiaries and the resulting reduction in vehicle mileage. This decrease can mainly be attributed to reduced fuel consumption at Deutsche Telekom in Germany, PTC and Slovak Telekom.

Jobticket Deutsche Telekom Group in Germany.

A regional season ticket offer is available to our employees at many Telekom offices in Germany, particularly those located in large conurbations. We signed a new agreement with the Ruhr‐Lippe traffic association during the reporting period. Thanks to this agreement even more employees are now using the discount season ticket in this area. We plan to introduce a discount season ticket in the public transport areas in and surrounding the German cities of Kassel, Siegen and Schwäbisch Hall as well. We are using different offers to make use of the discount season ticket even more attractive to our employees.

Reporting against standards.
By providing this information about the use of the discounted season ticket (Jobticket) we partially cover the EN 18 (Initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions) GRI performance indicator as well as the V04-13 (Percentage of services for offsetting carbon emissions) EFFAS indicator. Further, the information is relevant for the criteria 2 (Implementation of the sustainability strategy) and 10 (Innovation and product management) of the German Sustainability Code. It is also used for reporting in accordance with the Global Compact  Principles 7 (Precautionary approach) and 8 (Environmental responsibility).
