Going Carbon Neutral

AT&T has committed to be carbon neutral across our entire global operations by 2035. We’re addressing climate change because it impacts our operations, our people and the communities where we live and work.

Achieving Net Zero Emissions

We will achieve net zero Scope 1 and 2 emissions – the equivalent of 1.1 million homes’ annual electricity [i] – by focusing on key initiatives:

Renewable energy

More More

By entering into power purchase agreements with renewable energy developers, we reduce our emissions footprint, hedge against rising energy costs and help to add more clean electricity to the U.S. power grid. To date, we’ve purchased more than 1.5 gigawatts of renewable energy capacity.


Low emissions fleet

More More

We will continue to bring down emissions from our operational fleet by optimizing routes, switching to hybrid and electric vehicles and reducing the overall size of the fleet. We’re also planning for the decarbonization of our fleet.


Energy efficiency

More More

Each year, we implement thousands of energy efficiency projects across our network and operations, bringing down electricity use, emissions and reducing costs. Learn more in our Energy Management issue brief.

Science Based Targets


The Science Based Targets initiative – a joint effort of CDP, The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), the United Nations Global Compact and the World Resources Institute – has validated that our current commitments to reduce emissions are in line with what is needed by AT&T to do our part in holding global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius – a key threshold for helping to avoid the worst effects of climate change. We have also set a science-based target that 50% of our suppliers (covering purchased goods and services, capital goods and downstream leased assets as a portion of spend) set their own science-based Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions reduction targets by 2024.
