Reducing Emissions

Climate change is one of the world’s most pressing challenges. To help address it, we’re challenging ourselves to significantly reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. We’ve set big goals and believe technology can play a role in reducing emissions.



AT&T Connected Drones


If water utilities joined drones and remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) with secure AT&T Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity and a video analysis platform, they could keep their tanks in service, reduce inspection time, and avoid wasted water while cutting greenhouse gas emissions.



Energy-Efficient Frozen Food with Lineage Logistics®

Using AT&T Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity to collect temperature data, combined temperature, energy and food information to enable Lineage Logistics to manage its cooling operations, reducing costs and greenhouse gas emissions.


AT&T Connected Pallets

Connected pallets have the potential to avoid 640 metric tons of CO2e for every 1 million pallet trips.


Reducing Water Consumption with Lowe’s & HydroPoint 

An AT&T and HydroPoint® smart irrigation solution at nearly 1,000 Lowe’s stores is saving about 650 million gallons of water a year.


Food Waste into Energy with Emerson 

Increased scalability, thanks to AT&T Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity, means more food waste is being converted into clean energy and fertilizer by Emerson’s Grind2Energy solution.




Smart Farming with Precision King

Connected water-level sensors and pumps helped rice farmers reduce water use by 60% and realize greenhouse gas emissions savings.



Energy Efficiency in Buildings with Redaptive®


Redaptive® utilizes AT&T Internet of Things (IoT) solutions to reduce annual electricity use by almost 160 million kilowatt hours through energy-efficient building equipment.


AT&T Enterprise Building Management Systems (EBMS)

As of the end of 2017, 27,000 pieces of AT&T building equipment in AT&T buildings across 250 cities were reducing electricity expenses by about $925,000.




AT&T Efficiency-as-a-Service (EaaS)

In 2017 alone, this program enabled AT&T to save almost $20 million on electricity bills and realize carbon dioxide emissions savings equivalent to taking 21,000 cars off the road.



AT&T FlexWareSM

AT&T FlexWareSM helps reduce space, electricity usage and emissions by consolidating networking functions onto a single device. 3,500 FlexWare devices can enable annual energy savings of almost 4 million kWh. That’s like not using approximately 250,000 gallons of gasoline.
