Device packaging policy
Telekom has integrated key sustainability aspects into its device packaging policy, which applies throughout Germany. This policy requires package size to be reduced to a minimum, and exclusive use of environmentally friendly materials. All materials used must be fully recyclable including any plastic materials. Paper and cardboard must comply with the requirements of the Forest Stewardship Council® and be bleached without the use of chlorine. Printing ink needs to be made from vegetable-based oils.
