Social Charter

With its Social Charter, Telekom has made a commitment throughout the Group to complying with internationally recognized employee and human rights and sets its own ethical, social and environmental standards for corporate governance. Some of these standards exceed those specified by national law in some countries and explicitly include the activities of Telekom's suppliers. The ethical, social and environmental standards defined in the Social Charter together with our human rights policies are a permanent component of our general terms and conditions. We review compliance with the Social Charter at the relevant units each year and report the findings online. In addition to requiring each of our suppliers to complete a self-assessment, we conduct regular supplier audits to check whether our strategic suppliers, including those that are particularly prone to risk, are in compliance with our requirements.
