Different legal practices and cultural values in the countries where Deutsche Telekom is active represent a significant challenge for compliance. The increasingly dynamic development of global markets and intensified international competition also influence our compliance strategy.
In line with the Group’s international orientation, we discuss strategic issues with an international compliance advisory team twice a year. The team is a trend-setter of sorts for designing and implementing balanced compliance structures at Deutsche Telekom. We also promote Group-wide compliance cooperation through meetings of the representatives of all compliance organizations from our international subsidiaries.
We are working with other parties in national and international organizations and professional circles, which involves discussing compliance issues, among other things. We also actively contribute to the ongoing development of compliance, for example by giving specialist presentations and releasing publications.
