Press Release
AT&T Sets Goal to Help Businesses Reduce a Gigaton of Global Emissions by 2035

AT&T has set an industry-leading target to help businesses collectively reduce a gigaton of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions —1 billion metric tons — by 2035, an effort which will contribute to a better, more sustainable world.

A gigaton is equal to approximately 15% of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions and nearly 3% of global energy-related emissions in 2020 — or 1.6 billion flights from Los Angeles to New York.

The company will work with businesses including Microsoft, Equinix, and Duke Energy, along with research universities, and a range of other organizations to deliver broadband-enabled climate solutions at global scale. This collaborative builds on AT&T's standing commitment to aggressively reduce our own emissions, while enabling the transition to a net-zero economy.
