  • AT&T defines sustainability in a unique way that makes sense for our business and the communities in which we operate. To us, sustainability is a way of doing business that understands our company’s impact on society, and the impact that social issues have on our business. How we integrate the concerns of our communities into our business strategies helps strengthen and create shared value among us. Our company has been in existence for more than 130 years, in large part because we take into account the needs of society.
  • According to one recent report by Connected Nation, the US could expect to gain $92 billion through 2.4 million jobs created or saved annually by investing in broadband. Research shows that the Information Communications and Technology (ICT) sector could help the U.S. reduce emissions by an estimated 13-22% from business as usual projections and potentially achieve gross energy and fuel savings of U.S. $140-$240 billion (according to the Smart 2020 U.S addendum).
