Connecting to good is a daily commitment, and so is tracking and measuring our progress. Instead of a traditional sustainability report, we update data periodically across our issue briefs and post new stories on our Social Responsibility Newsroom.

AT&T is dedicated to using technology to help solve some of the world’s most pressing challenges—from climate change and resource conservation to improving education outcomes for students and employees.

Progress Toward 2025 Goals

By 2025, some experts say there will be hundreds of billions of connected devices measuring, analyzing and networking to give us more information than ever before. The possibilities are endless and we want to seize them.

Focused on our vision — Connect to Good — we have established a 10-year roadmap of goals and targets to serve as milestones for this journey.
