AT&T Sustainability Update
We're excited to announce the release of our AT&T Annual Sustainability Update.
From smartphones and innovative smart ed tech products to smart homes, cities and classrooms, connectivity is changing the ways we help to address social and environmental challenges.
Thanks to the work of our employees – more than 250,000 strong – we’re already seeing the impacts on our world, which are depicted in this report. Together with you, we’re excited to see how the power of our network can continue to build a better tomorrow.
