Sustainability Guideline for Product Design
The Deutsche Telekom Design Principles have been mandatory for product development at Telekom in line with the Group strategy since 2009. The first of the Design Principles was taken from our CR strategy: "Act responsibly. Think globally." In 2012, Telekom integrated sustainability requirements into the Design Principles. Since then, all of our product design-related invitations to bid have included sustainability criteria such as "recyclable" and "energy efficient."
