"Most of the green mobile data in Germany is already transported via our mobile network. Our aim in the next few years is to become climate neutral as a company as a whole,"
explains Markus Haas
, CEO of Telefónica Deutschland, in the course of publishing the Corporate Responsibility Report 2019
. To this end, the company is already working on an ambitious Corporate Environmental Strategy for the coming years.
Key factors in meeting the CO2
targets were above all savings in the grid area, increased energy efficiency in buildings and reductions in CO2 emissions
from the vehicle fleet and business travel. Furthermore, by equipping its network location in Berlin with the latest digital building control technology, Telefónica has reduced electricity consumption by up to 25 percent per month, thus improving the CO2
The Telefónica Responsible Business Plan 2020 is the central management tool for Telefónica's corporate responsibility commitment. It comprises targets in the priority areas "Environmental and climate protection"
, "Responsible business"
and "Strengthening life in the digital world"
. The good to very good results in terms of customer and employee satisfaction, well-received programmes to improve the digital competence of young people and senior citizens and the strengthening of data protection and information security are among the highlights in these areas in 2019.
