CR rating: Protecting whistleblowers

Every employee at Deutsche Telekom has a responsibility to report a breach or suspected breach of legal regulations, guidelines, or internal policies. In addition to reporting to their direct superiors, they can also use the Tell me! whistleblower platform. Our Code of Conduct specifically states that whistleblowers will be protected. They will not be at any disadvantage unless they themselves are in breach of applicable regulations. We communicate this policy as an aspect of our Code of Conduct to all of our employees. The Code of Conduct also serves as a guidance for the people and departments that are responsible for following up on the reports.
