AT&T has set a goal to be carbon neutral by 2035

Carbon neutral by 2035

Our carbon neutral goal shows our commitment to reduce our own emissions as well as delivering solutions that help our customers achieve their net zero ambitions.

AT&T Business answers the call to help relieve climate impacts

We’ve established a new goal to deliver connectivity solutions that enable business customers to reduce a gigaton (1B metric tons) of greenhouse gases through a program called the Connected Climate Initiative.  Working with other companies, nongovernmental organizations, and universities to scale today’s—and develop tomorrow’s—smart connectivity solutions for addressing climate change, focusing in these areas:

  • Exploring the possibilities of 5G

    Funding research at leading universities to explore how 5G can enable emissions reduction in areas like transportation, energy and manufacturing.

  • Co-creating solutions with customers

    Engaging businesses across various industries to identify connectivity-driven use cases that enable business value and result in emissions reduction.

  • Fueling innovation and disruptive technologies

    Supporting disruptive technologies through the largest climate tech innovation cohort in the world.  

  • Joining forces

    Collaborating on joint product offerings around digital transformation, making service integration easier and faster to deliver, helping customers drive emissions reduction.

Our projects result in solutions that businesses can use to lower environmental impacts, ultimately eliminating at least a gigaton in emissions by 2035. We will use our findings to implement faster, bolder innovations that help deliver the massive emissions reductions needed to achieve global climate goals for years to come.
