AT&T FlexWareSM helps reduce space, electricity usage and emissions by consolidating networking functions onto a single device. 3,500 FlexWare devices can enable annual energy savings of almost 4 million kWh. That’s like not using approximately 250,000 gallons of gasoline.
ALL CASE STUDIES
Energy-Efficient Frozen Food with Lineage Logistics®
Using AT&T Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity to collect temperature data, ndustrial.io combined temperature, energy and food information to enable Lineage Logistics to manage its cooling operations, reducing costs and greenhouse gas emissions.
AT&T Connected Pallets
Connected pallets have the potential to avoid 640 metric tons of CO2e for every 1 million pallet trips.
Reducing Water Consumption with Lowe’s & HydroPoint
An AT&T and HydroPoint® smart irrigation solution at nearly 1,000 Lowe’s stores is saving about 650 million gallons of water a year.
Smart Farming with Precision King
Connected water-level sensors and pumps helped rice farmers reduce water use by 60% and realize greenhouse gas emissions savings.
Food Waste into Energy with Emerson
Increased scalability, thanks to AT&T Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity, means more food waste is being converted into clean energy and fertilizer by Emerson’s Grind2Energy solution.
Energy Efficiency in Buildings with Redaptive®
Redaptive® utilizes AT&T Internet of Things (IoT) solutions to reduce annual electricity use by almost 160 million kilowatt hours through energy-efficient building equipment.
AT&T Enterprise Building Management Systems (EBMS)
As of the end of 2017, 27,000 pieces of AT&T building equipment in AT&T buildings across 250 cities were reducing electricity expenses by about $925,000.
AT&T Efficiency-as-a-Service (EaaS)
In 2017 alone, this program enabled AT&T to save almost $20 million on electricity bills and realize carbon dioxide emissions savings equivalent to taking 21,000 cars off the road.
We’re a founding member of the Net Positive Project, a collaborative effort looking to spur “net positive” efforts like our 10x goal that put back more into society, the environment and the global economy than they take out. Together with this group, we are working to create credible, common approaches to measuring “net positive” and to encourage other companies to pursue a net positive impact.
How We're Measuring Progress
In 2015, there was no standard methodology to measure how technology solutions can help reduce GHG emissions. We worked with the Carbon Trust and BSR, two expert non-government organizations, to build a 10x Methodology for measuring progress toward our 10x goal.
Progress to 2025: 10x Goal Update
We measure our impact by examining how AT&T technology solutions can enable lower GHG emissions in eight impact areas and compare them to our scope 1 and 2 emissions. At the end of 2018, we estimated that our technology solutions enabled GHG reductions of 17.1 million metric tons of CO2e, which is equivalent to over 1.9 billion gallons of gasoline. In 2018, our carbon footprint was 7.7 million metric tons of CO2e, putting our current 10x factor at approximately 2.2x.
