Preventing greenhouse gas emissions is one of our top priorities. CO2 emissions that we are unable to prevent or reduce can be compensated by investing in certified climate protection projects in addition to devoting greater efforts to using renewable energy.
In the 2018 reporting year, Telekom Deutschland compensated for greenhouse gas emissions amounting to almost 9,169 metric tons of CO2. These included emissions associated with our events (participants’ travel to and from the event, room usage, etc.) and certain products and services (e.g., conference calls or web conferences). Our Event Policy specifies the ways in which we compensate for emissions generated by events.
