Sustainable products

Our products and services contribute to more sustainability. Besides constantly becoming smarter, households and offices are increasingly networking with one another. Using solutions such as Magenta SmartHome, consumers can control their heating, lighting, and electrical devices in the Internet of Things (IoT) to ensure they only use energy when someone is home. This lowers energy consumption and preserves resources. Our cloud solutions are another excellent example of how our products can help customers considerably reduce CO2 emissions. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that take advantage of cloud solutions can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 21 metric tons each year on average. This is because, instead of being operated on the customer’s premises, applications are shifted to efficient data centers, enabling customers to minimize their infrastructure. Furthermore, Deutsche Telekom pursues and supports projects that help make cities “smarter”.

Sustainable products such as those mentioned above are a key element of our integrated climate strategy. Our goal is to improve how we record and increase the CO2 reduction potential offered by our products.
