Accomplishment Recognized by U.S. Environmental Agency as AT&T Reaches Milestone of 100 Million ENERGY STAR Certified Set-top Boxes Installed

AT&T* has received the 2018 ENERGY STAR® Award for Excellence in Product Design. The accomplishment will be recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. on April 20, 2018.

The award recognizes AT&T’s leadership in energy efficient product design as the company reaches a new milestone. Since AT&T began participating in the ENERGY STAR program in 2009, we’ve installed more than 100 million new ENERGY STAR certified set-top boxes (STBs), which are more efficient than conventional models.1 These STBs have helped to reduce greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from about 750,000 cars.2

“The 2018 ENERGY STAR award winners have demonstrated real leadership, showing how American families and businesses can save energy, save money, and reduce air emissions,” said Bill Wehrum, EPA Assistant Administrator for Air and Radiation.

In 2016 alone, ENERGY STAR certified products, homes, buildings, and plants helped Americans save over $30 billion in energy costs and approximately 400 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity and while achieving broad emissions reductions.

AT&T’s participation in the ENERGY STAR program builds upon our commitment to the environment and using the power of our network to create a better, more sustainable world. We’re working companywide to make our network, fleet and operations more efficient and we’ve set a goal to enable carbon savings 10 times the footprint of our operations by the end of 2025. We’re also committing our resources and expertise in the Internet of Things (IoT) to help make cities cleaner, safer and stronger through smart cities. And, we’re helping our customers use IoT for Good, by connecting everything from trucks, to farm equipment, to city infrastructure and more.
