Due to the steadily increasing relevance and strong reference to the integrated climate strategy, the data on "Renewable energies" was reported for the first time in 2015 and listed for the first time as an ESG KPI in 2016. The KPI is calculated based on the share of renewable energy in total electricity consumption. We are committed to increasing our reliance on renewable energy throughout the Group. To this end, all European national companies can purchase renewable energy directly as well as energy certificates if needed.
The share of energy from renewable sources used by Deutsche Telekom was 41 percent in 2017. The average share of renewable energy in the country mix in all countries where Deutsche Telekom is active was 30 percent. The share of renewable energy purchased through the country mix amounted to 26 percent ("remaining" country mix).
