Our range of sustainable products and services keeps on growing. In 2019, we generated 42,5 percent of our revenue with such products. A few examples:
We are working on bringing products to market that are as resource-efficient as possible. By reducing the size of SIM card holders, for example, we are saving 50 percent in material – that was 20,79 metric tons of plastic in 2019.
Heating that turns off automatically when a window is opened? Lights that only stay on when there’s someone in the room? Our smart home solutions help reduce energy consumption in the home.
Some 30 percent of city traffic is caused by people searching for a parking space. Deutsche Telekom’s “Park & Joy” app leads drivers straight to the nearest free parking spot – easy on the nerves and it reduces CO2 emissions too.
In the United States, T-Mobile has taken back more than 26 million used devices since 2013. 85 percent were reused or resold, and the rest recycled. That saves valuable resources.
In 2019, the Croatian national company Hrvatski Telekom installed eleven smart charging stations for electric cars on the island of Krk. Overall, it has set up more than 200 charging points in 80 Croatian cities.
Our telehealth platform enables better medical care. Patients, physicians, hospitals, nursing staff, pharmacies, and health insurers can share findings or lab results in encrypted form, for instance.
