10/22/2015 | Deutsche Telekom supports the Sustainable Development Goals

In September 2015, the UN adopted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Deutsche Telekom is helping to achieve them through a large number of activities.

Global Compact is a voluntary initiative of the United Nations. Its members undertake to implement universal principles in the area of sustainability. On September 25, 2015, the UN adopted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, which among other things aim to achieve gender equality, build sustainable industry, and stop climate change. As a founding member of the Global Compact, Deutsche Telekom AG is meeting its social responsibility and supporting these goals by pursuing numerous activities. For example, Deutsche Telekom has introduced a women's quota at management level, promotes and produces sustainable innovations, and reduces carbon emissions with its climate protection strategy.

The Sustainable Development Goals succeed the Millennium Development Goals and will apply for the next 15 years. Deutsche Telekom AG will also make a contribution to achieving these new goals.
