Sustainability Overview

Sustainability is a way of doing business that understands our company's impact on society and the impact that social issues have on our business. How we integrate the concerns of our communities into our business strategies helps strengthen and create shared value among us. Sustainability can't be defined as a single program or token initiative. It's an explicit and defined aspect of who we are as a company and how we run our business. It's an obligation to operate better and smarter — and run our business in a way that makes sense for both our company and our world.

AT&T organizes our sustainability initiatives into three focus areas, which reflect the issues we feel embody our commitment.
