The Telekom Ideengarten for climate protection

"Based on our experiences, we as employees often have very clear ideas of how to make our company more sustainable. I think it's great that Telekom encourages us to get involved. The Ideengarten competition was a welcome opportunity to contribute my ideas on mobility management."

Mark Breitenbücher, Winner of the Telekom Ideengarten competition for climate protection competition

Objective To promote climate-friendly conduct throughout our company with the help of our employees' excellent ideas and involvement
Success 467 employees submitted climate protection ideas
Implementation By getting our employees involved, we want to encourage responsible conduct throughout our company and utilize the tremendous innovation potential of our employees' ideas. That is why we called on all Telekom employees in Germany to participate in a competition to help protect the climate. The jury announced the winners in February 2014. First place went to an idea for introducing mobility management throughout the company.

Each year, we identify topics that are fundamental to sustainable business development in consultation with our stakeholders (materiality process). Our Ideengarten competition for climate protection, which takes place as part of our stakeholder involvement activities, is a good example of how we put these into practice.
