The transformation of our world has accelerated rapidly. Climate and demographic change, social inequality, and technological progress – these changes affect us all, positively and negatively. We as a society face the challenge of shaping and mastering these changes - only if we are successful can we continue to develop further. At Deutsche Telekom, we all follow the goal: getting everyone connected. That is our contribution. Being able to take part in the digital world is such a central need that it affects everyone. We are committed to this and obligate our business partners and suppliers to do the same.

Responsible digitalization represents the extension of our practiced corporate responsibility into an increasingly digitalized world. Based on this conviction, we design our internal processes, business activities, and business relationships; we adapt our product portfolio and service offerings; we stand up for community and campaign against the division of society. With this document, we are demonstrating the spectrum of our digital responsibility. We are creating transparency as to how we at Deutsche Telekom are helping to get society more connected in the long term – every person in all of their individuality. People are at the heart of everything we do.
