- AT&T has set a goal to enable greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) savings 10 times the footprint of its operations by 2025. AT&T calls it the “10x Carbon Reduction Goal.”
- The company is working to achieve this goal by making its network, fleet, and operations more efficient and working with customers to deploy connectivity and technology solutions that help reduce emissions.
- The company is one of the largest corporate purchasers of renewable energy in the U.S.
- AT&T’s renewable energy purchases will surpass 1.5 gigawatts (GW) of clean energy capacity.
- AT&T has engaged the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory on a Climate Change Resiliency Project to better anticipate, prepare for, and adapt to the effects of climate change. This work led to AT&T’s development of a Climate Change Analysis Tool that enables the company to visualize the impacts of climate change on AT&T’s network infrastructure and business operations – at the neighborhood level – 30 years into the future.
- In coordination with Argonne National Laboratory, the company is sharing with the public the same rich climate datasets it is using in its own climate risk analysis so that others can assess their vulnerabilities and build resilience.
- AT&T launched the AT&T Climate Resiliency Community Challenge for universities to collaborate with local governments in the Southeast to conduct climate risk analysis using the data developed by Argonne National Laboratory and shared by AT&T.
