Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) ESG KPI

The Socially Responsible Investment (SRI img) ESG KPI img indicates the proportion of shares in Deutsche Telekom AG held by investors who take, among other criteria, environmental, social, and governance criteria into account for their investment strategy. As the basis of calculation is updated annually, year-on-year comparisons may be of limited value. (Source: NASDAQ, based on Deutsche Telekom’s shareholder structure as of Sept. 30, 2017)

Our commitment for more sustainability pays off for investors as well: As of September 30, 2017, roughly 18 percent of all T-Shares were held by SRI (socially responsible investment) investors, and around 3 percent were held by investors who manage their funds primarily in accordance with SRI aspects.

Reporting against standards

The KPI img  is relevant for criteria 1 (Strategic Analysis, Strategy and Goals) and 7 (Rules and Processes) of the German Sustainability Code.

Listing of the T-share

Sustainability ratings play a key role in SRI img investment decisions. In line with our corporate responsibility strategy, we concentrate on specific rating agencies that we select on the basis of reputation, relevance and independence.

In 2017, the T-Share was again listed on leading sustainability indexes, including RobecoSAM’s prominent DJSI img World and DJSI Europe. Once more, our share was listed on the FTSE4Good img and UN Global Compact 100 indexes. Rating agency “oekom” singled us out as the world’s best telecommunications company in terms of ecological and social performance in 2016.
