Digitization is changing our society. We are supporting this change, simplifying and enriching people's lives. However, increasing digitization requires a lot of energy, which is why we are committed to using energy more efficiently and reducing the energy consumption of our networks.
Energy efficiency in the network
Our network infrastructure forms the basis of our products and services. At the same time, network operation requires the most energy and therefore results in the largest carbon emissions, which makes achieving greater energy efficiency in network technologies a key component of our climate protection target. When it comes to our networks, we engage in activities such as replacing outdated technology with new technology, e.g., the migration of our fixed-line network to IP technology. In addition, we are currently consolidating data traffic into only a few, particularly efficient, data centers.
Conserving resources is a central focal point of our sustainability activities. We place a good deal of importance on reducing waste and recycling valuable resources.
