For us, SUSTAINABILITY is MORE THAN A VISION. It rather is a PATH to which we are rigorously committed. STEP BY STEP. With clear milestones and key figures used to MEASURE OUR PROGRESS. This report is an INTERIM REVIEW of things achieved, exceeded and within reach. Furthermore, it defines the route for OUR NEXT STEPS.
Preface by the management board
It is not in the nature of sustainability to ever regard its job as being accomplished. Here, the journey is literally the reward. The starting point that gives it direction is the initial commitment to a sustainable life and work style. And a serious and far-reaching sense of responsibility on a social and ecological level. With its commitment to the three-pillar model of sustainable development (people, planet, profit) as well as to the UN Global Compact, Telekom Austria Group clearly embodies both.
The current sustainability report sums up the progress made in the pursuit of our goals for 2015. Important milestones were reached in this process. Some goals were even exceeded and others are within reach. Our interim balance as per 2015 shows that we are heading in the right direction. However, since the path of sustainability is a never-ending one, Telekom Austria Group has already set itself new, even more focussed, ambitious and particular goals for 2018 by means of yet another materiality analysis. Those who wish to go the full distance need to be consistent. We would be honoured if you accompanied us along this path with your interest!
