This is the first independent report issued by 1&1 Drillisch Group on the sustainability of its business operations. 1&1 Drillisch has always oriented its business activities strictly to criteria of sustainability and of corporate and social responsibility. We have simply never before expressly communicated these policies of action. Beginning with this report, we will provide to you a continuous flow of information in the future.
As a telecommunications service provider, the focus of our sustainability activities is primarily on the three aspects of performance, service and security. Our declared objective is to offer to our customers the best value for money on the telephony market in the form of innovative and creative products and services.
At the same time, we strive to maintain a balance between the interests of the Company and of other interest groups. With this in mind, 1&1 Drillisch maintains an ongoing dialogue with customers, shareholders, business partners, employees and other so-called stakeholders. What we learn from this exchange gives us important ideas for the successful further development of our product portfolio and of our Company as a whole.
Our understanding of sustainability has enabled us to lay a solid foundation, operationally and technologically, for profitable growth in the future. Building on this foundation, we merged with United Internet AG in the second half of 2017 and brought its subsidiary 1&1 Telecommunication SE into our Company. This step has created a powerful, full-service telecommunications provider enjoying substantial potential for synergy and growth in mobile and landline networks that now bears the name 1&1 Drillisch.
While the integration of 1&1 Telecommunication has been completed, the harmonisation of the structures and recording systems for the preparation of sustainability reports is currently still in progress. For this reason, a complete picture of the sustainability of 1&1 Drillisch Group will not be available until the issue of a later report.
Nevertheless, even this report will give you a detailed overview of facts and figures that will provide to you an accurate view of the conscientious activities of 1&1 Drillisch Group. The process of sustainable economic activity is firmly anchored in our corporate strategy. We have achieved much; we are striving to improve even further. We are strongly committed to our ongoing work in this area and will regularly and transparently report on the subject of sustainability at 1&1 Drillisch.
