Our main sources of refinancing are the international debt capital markets, especially the euro and U.S. dollar markets. Bonds are issued in various currencies (in particular EUR, USD, GBP), to exploit market opportunities, and to address a wide range of investors. Most of the bonds are issued under our standard "Debt Issuance Programme (DIP)."
Debt Issuance Programme (DIP)
The Debt Issuance Programme (DIP) of EUR 35 billion, represents for us a standardized framework for the issuance of bonds and private placements in various currencies in accordance with the European Prospectus Directive. This program gives Deutsche Telekom AG and its financing subsidiary Deutsche Telekom International Finance B.V. in Maastricht the option to self-finance flexibly in the international capital markets. Bonds issued by Deutsche Telekom International Finance B.V. are guaranteed by Deutsche Telekom AG.

Sustainability-Linked Bond (SLB) Framework
The SLB framework provides the necessary information for issuing SLBs within our Debt Issuance Programme (DIP) and is aligned with the Sustainability-Linked Bond Principles (SLBP) 2020 published by the International Capital Market Association (ICMA).
Acting responsibly for a low-carbon society is one of the key action areas of DT’s Corporate Responsibility (CR) Strategy. For this reason, our Board of Management decided to accelerate and expand our climate commitments in March 2021. We believe that SLB financing will underline these sustainability objectives very effectively and provide fixed income investors with a further measure to support our contribution to climate change mitigation.
Further information about our climate strategy and the relevant KPI reporting in relation to the Sustainability Performance targets within the framework are available on our CR website (Corporate Responsibility - Climate and Environment) and will also be published in our forthcoming CR reports (for 2020: CR Report 2020).
