Deutsche Telekom is one of the world's leading integrated telecommunications companies, with some 151 million mobile customers, 30 million fixed-network lines, and more than 17 million broadband lines.
We provide fixed-network/broadband, mobile, Internet, and IPTV products and services for consumers, and information and communication technology (ICT ) solutions for business and corporate customers.
Deutsche Telekom operates in more than 50 countries. With a staff of some 228,000 employees throughout the world, we generated revenue of 62.7 billion euros in the 2014 financial year, more than 60 percent of it outside Germany.
So that we can continue to be successful, we are already evolving from a traditional telephone company into an entirely new kind of service company. Our core business, i.e., the operation and sale of networks and connections, remains the basis. But at the same time we are proactively committing to business areas that open up new growth opportunities for us.
We believe that economic, social and ecological perspectives can be reconciled. Sustainability underpins all of our business activities. The fact that we are the first DAX-30 company to introduce a quota for women in management, or that we cover our entire power requirements in Germany from regenerative sources are just two examples of this. In other words, we have a clearly defined objective: We want to be a business enterprise that delights its customers, creates value for its investors, and in which employees enjoy their work.
