Check out the details on our latest green fleet commitment.
We don't run our business in a bubble. We are inter-reliant with our communities. We are impacted by the same social, economic, and environmental initiatives that impact the communities in which we live and serve. That means in order to be sustainable, we have to do what’s right for the company and what’s right for the community.
Our commitment to alternative fuels is just one of the ways that we are achieving that commitment.
Over the next ten years, AT&T will invest more than $550 million towards its alternative fuel program. We will deploy more than 15,000 alternative-fuel vehicles into AT&T’s fleet.
I feel proud working for a company that cares about the environment and is doing something about it.
This year, we’ll deploy more than 800 compressed natural gas and electric hybrid vehicles.
In my job, I drive a lot of miles and so this vehicle has been great. I refuel less.
I do travel a lot. I probably average anywhere between 50 and 75 miles a day. So, you know, it’s burning cleaner and it’s good for the environment.
AT&T commitment to alternative-fuel vehicles is a long-term comprehensive commitment that will help us lower our fuel consumption and reduce greenhouse gas effects on the communities in which we work, live, and serve.
Our technicians are not only there to provide them with the best of service, but we are taking care of them environmentally as well.
We have one of the largest corporate fleets in the country. We want to use the size of our fleet and our buying power to signal to the industry that we’re interested in alternative-fuel vehicles.
The best part, I guess, is being part of the solution.
Bottom line, this is the right thing to do. It is the right strategy for our customers, for our company, and also for the country.
At AT&T, we’re committed to pursuing sustainable business objectives. We don't have all the answers, but we are committed to collaborating with policy makers and with stakeholders in order to make our business and our community more sustainable.
