G4-EN3 Energy consumption within the organization

Aspect: Effluents and Waste
G4-EN23 Total weight of waste by type and disposal method
Deutsche Telekom addresses the majority of the waste produced by our business activities within our Group-wide waste management framework (copper recycling) and with our Used Cell-Phone Collection ESG KPI (cell phones that have been collected and recycled). Any additional data collection regarding disposal methods would be complex and the amount of time and work involved could not be reasonably justified based on the benefit this type of data collection would bring.

Aspect: Supplier environmental assessment
G4-EN32 Percentage of new suppliers that were screened using environmental criteria
We do not currently have information regarding the percentage of new suppliers that have been evaluated based on sustainability criteria (e.g., though voluntary information, the EcoVadis platform or social audits). This information will be available once the supplier portal has been introduced throughout the Group. Rollout is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2016. The general requirement for any supplier relationship is passing a pre-qualification process, which includes 16 questions regarding sustainability.
