How can international corporations put sustainability strategies into practice across borders? Deutsche Telekom employs CR managers for the relevant business segments and national companies to reach this goal. Through the CR Manager Network, CR managers attend regular face-to-face and online meetings to share best practices and discuss new challenges, thereby jointly promoting essential CR issues. The central Group Corporate Responsibility (GCR) department is responsible for managing the network.
In 2018, our CR Manager Network celebrated its tenth anniversary in its current form. It emerged from a network whose main focus was on environmental protection.
Two CR manager meetings took place in this anniversary year: the 19th CR manager meeting in Vienna in May, and the 20th CR manager meeting in Bonn in October. The main topics were advancement of the climate strategy, the international launch of our “Stop Wasting – Start Caring!” resource conservation initiative and the international expansion of our “Media, sure! But secure.” media skills initiative.
