Carbon intensity ESG KPI Deutsche Telekom Group

The Carbon Intensity ESG KPI img was a new addition to the reporting this year. In contrast to the existing CO2 Emissions ESG KPI, the new ESG KPI shows the CO2 emissions in proportion to the transmitted data volumes. Using data volume as a reference parameter makes it possible to create a direct link to the performance of our networks. The KPI is reported for DT Group EU and T-Mobile US.
