2020 Corporate Responsibility Report

Holistic “We care for our planet” environmental project

Our contribution to the SDGs

In the context of adopting our new climate targets, the Deutsche Telekom Board of Management issued a mandate in 2019 to further expand our existing commitment to climate, environmental protection and resource conservation. We then identified areas along our value chain in which we can improve resource efficiency and make an effective contribution to achieving our climate targets. We summarized the measures required for this in the “we care for our planet” program. Group Corporate Responsibility (GCR) manages implementation of the program. Deutsche Telekom’s segments and departments are implementing numerous measures as part of the program, which have been divided into different workstreams. To measure our progress, we adopted new KPIs in 2020 (see below).

Green Pioneers”, our internal ambassadors for sustainability, participate in all the workstreams of the “we care for our planet” program. The Green Pioneers are also firmly integrated in the program management of “we care for our planet”. In our national companies, employee-led initiatives are also working to reduce our environmental footprint.

We care for our planet international
Our international companies are already implementing various measures as part of “we care for our planet”. 2020 saw the start of intensive international cooperation in our environmental program. The aim is to synchronize activities as much as possible and, in the long term, establish a regular exchange of experience between the departments in Germany and the national companies.
