Sustainability policy commits us

Sustainability is a natural part of our business. We commit to act responsibly, and of course we comply with all relevant laws and regulations, but we go further than that. Together with our partners, we prioritise these four areas in our strategy and commitments: Environmental impact, responsible procurement and sustainable supply chain, community and ethical behavior.

Security, privacy and data ethics

At TDC NET, we have a systematic approach to risk management and security, with regular assessments conducted both internally and by external parties, ongoing investments, control and management focus.


We comply with Danish and EU rules on data protection and privacy. However, since we do not consider them a sufficient basis for our work with data ethics, in 2019 we launched our own policy with 10 rules for handling personal data.
