Reports and inquiries to the Contact Point for Human Rights
We established a contact point for human rights at Deutsche Telekom in 2013. Between January 1 and December 31, 2017, the contact point received seven reports related to human rights, submitted either directly to the contact point or through the (anonymous) whistleblower portal. Not all of these tip-offs were deemed plausible. Most of the inquiries and reports related to the topic of "compliance and verification of human rights at Deutsche Telekom". A few reports related to the topic of ongoing professional education. We also received several fundraising and support questions, which we forwarded to the appropriate colleagues. Of course, all reports were treated as confidential.
