Sustainability takes many forms at AT&T: engaging in communities around us, reducing our environmental impact and investing in technologies to make the world a better place. Each year we highlight these commitments and others in our Annual Sustainability Update, which captures our work from the past year through a variety of features and downloadable materials.
