Measuring sustainable performance.
Across the Group, Deutsche Telekom strives for sustainable business development. “We take responsibility” means that we square up to the challenges facing society as a whole and are committed both to the environment and to society. The strategic orientation of corporate responsibility (CR) is derived from our Group strategy. We define specific areas of focus, such as climate protection or ensuring a sustainable supply chain. In 2013, we achieved significant milestones, including the further development of our Social Charter and adoption of an international climate protection target. We have developed CR-specific steering parameters, known as our CR key performance indicators (CR KPIs), to measure our success. Key indicators of Deutsche Telekom’s performance include the CR KPIs shown below: CO2 Emissions, Energy Consumption, and Sustainable Procurement.
