For almost 130 years we have been connecting people. Our technology and services help people to share important moments in their lives. We also believe we have a key role to play in society. That role entails responsibilities: remaining financially healthy, for instance, because there are many people who depend on us, such as customers, employees, shareholders and suppliers.
A healthy society is indispensable, which explains our investment in corporate social responsibility (CSR). That investment means harnessing our products to social needs, operating in an environmentally-aware and climate-friendly fashion and fostering a society that everybody can take part in.
Connecting people, bringing them into contact with one another, is our core competence. We provide products and services that allow people to work freed from the constraints of time or place, so that they can combine work with other matters such as care-giving or voluntary activities. This benefits both employees and society.
ICT is playing an ever-widening part in our life. KPN's aim is to be a sound, profitable company by contributing to progress within the community at large. Over the past years we have been investing EUR 1.8 billion every year in our IT infrastructure, for example in the improvement of fiber services, fixed and mobile networks, data centers and retail outlets.
