How Are Organizations like AT&T Working toward Carbon Neutrality?

The Energy Exchange explores the complex and critical intersection of energy, money and technology. Experts will use their insights and forecasts to outline what energy is available to us, the costs associated with that energy production and its use, and the technological innovations changing the way we utilize Earth’s resources to power our way of life.

 

As the next “season” of The Energy Exchange kicks off, host David Hidinger started things off with a bang, inviting AT&T AVP – Global Environmental Sustainability Charles Herget onto the show to explore a variety of topics related to sustainability and the initiatives of the telco juggernaut.

In his role, Herget leads AT&T’s corporate environmental sustainability efforts across the organization, taking stock of end-to-end processes in order to evaluate how the company can achieve its sustainability goals.

Perhaps its most prominent current goal is carbon neutrality, which the organization hopes to achieve by 2035. That’s a tall order made taller by the addition of several other considerations, including:

Expansion of its Climate Change Analysis Tool

Achieving net zero Scope 1 and 2 emissions

A commitment to network resiliency in the face of natural disasters and other disruptions

Influencing suppliers and partners in an effort to engender widespread impact

Herget and Hidinger dove into these goals, identifying specific steps the organization is taking to achieve them, exploring their potential impact on service across the globe, and examining the critical importance of connectivity in a world advancing more rapidly than ever before.
