Investing in a Carbon Neutral Future


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. To eliminate our Scope 1 and 2 emissions, we’re improving network virtualization and energy efficiency efforts, transitioning to a low-emissions fleet, supporting the renewable energy marketplace and expanding sustainable feature film and TV production.

How We're Becoming Carbon Neutral

Building Climate Resilience


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.
