Environment

As one of the world’s largest companies, we can play a role in creating a better, more environmentally sustainable future. We’re acting to address climate change and prepare for its impacts because it is good for our business, for the stakeholders we serve and for our planet. 

Investing in Renewable Energy


AT&T is going big on renewable energy. We’re one of the largest corporate purchasers of renewable energy in the U.S., and our investments are helping to create jobs and enable a clean energy future. It’s one way we’re working to create a better, more environmentally sustainable world.

How We're Making an Impact

Reducing Emissions


Climate change is one of the world’s most pressing challenges. At AT&T, we’re working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help mitigate the impacts of climate change. We’ve set big goals, including our commitment to be carbon neutral by 2035 across our entire global operations, including the world’s best mobility network and WarnerMedia’s premium content creation. To eliminate our Scope 1 and 2 emissions, we’re improving energy efficiency and network virtualization efforts, moving to a low-emissions fleet and scaling our renewable energy capacity.

Our 10x Goal

Building Climate Resiliency


AT&T is taking steps to adapt to the changing climate. We’re expanding our industry-leading Climate Change Analysis Tool across the contiguous U.S. to identify the potential impacts of climate change on our network and operations – up to 30 years into the future. The climate impacts we examine include flooding and hurricanes, as well as drought and wildfires. We’re also sharing this data so others can use it in their own risk analysis. These actions are helping to build resilience for our business and, in turn, the communities we serve.
