Charity Initiative

We are developing joined-up campaigns and projects to achieve our goals within the CR framework. One example is setting up an annual initiative where we connect the volunteering work of our employees and a cash donation by the company to support a specific charity project chosen by all of our employees.

In 2018, T-Systems supported the DON foundation (Diabetes Onderzoek Nederland) by donating money to accelerate the project ‘Growing human pancreas in a dish’. This groundbreaking study is conducted by the Hubrecht Institute and is directed toward finding a cure for type 1 diabetes. Alongside the donation, a hockey clinic was organized by a 16-year old boy who suffers from diabetes type 1 for the children of employees. He demonstrated that it is possible to pursue sports at a high level while suffering from a chronic disease.
