Since the CR report 2016 we provide the first general overview of all CO2 emissions by Deutsche Telekom (Scope 1-3). To ease comparisons with the shown Scope 3 emissions presented in CO2 equivalents , the Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions were converted into metric kilotons of CO2 equivalents. Emissions are presented along Deutsche Telekom's supply chain. This allows for an overview of where most of the emissions are produced.
Transportation services, purchased products and services, capital goods, production waste, upstream energy and fuel supply chains, business travel, and employee commuting.
By measuring progress based on our CO2 Emissions ESG KPI , we report our CO2 emissions in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol together with our self-defined CO2 reduction goal, thereby complying with criterion 13 of the German Sustainability Code (Greenhouse gas emissions). By reporting this data, we fully cover the GRI 305-1 (Direct GHG emissions), GRI 305-2 (Energy indirect GHG emissions) and GRI 305-3 (Other indirect GHG emissions) GRI indicators and partially cover the E02-01 (Scope 1-3 greenhouse gas emissions) EFFAS indicator. This data is also relevant for criteria 7 (Rules and processes), 11 and 12 (Usage of natural resources) and 13 (Greenhouse gas emissions) of the German Sustainability Code. It is also used for reporting on the Global Compact principles 7 (Precautionary approach) and 8 (Promoting environmental responsibility).
