Sustainability ratings and indices
Sustainability is a key success factor for our business and has been an integral part of Telefónica Deutschland´s DNA since 2005. We want to make our contribution in ensuring that Germany and Europe play a leading role in the digitalisation of the economy and society. This also includes taking responsibility and keeping an eye on the impact on individuals, society and the environment in all our business activities. In light of this, we actively manage sustainability engagement with our Responsible Business Plan 2025. As part of the 5-year plan, the company will take concrete measures to be climate-neutral by 2025 at the latest with the greenest network, strengthen customer and employee satisfaction, and enable all generations to participate safely in digital life. The plan includes a total of 76 sustainability measures, some of which are backed by bonus-relevant quantitative targets and some by qualitative targets. This represents more than a doubling of the measures from the past five years, in which the company had pursued 35 measures and in some cases exceeded them. The new sustainability initiative is thus more deeply anchored in the company than ever before and covers four key areas: "Environment & Climate", "Products & Services", "Employees" and "Society". The focus areas of the Responsible Business Plan 2025 are based on the principles for responsible corporate governance that Telefónica Deutschland implements in all business processes. We use sustainability ratings in order to continuously analyse our CR performance and to provide information for investment decision-making. Responsible corporate action is becoming increasingly important for capital market players.
