"AT&T Inc., a company based in the USA, has set a net zero target to achieve carbon neutrality (net zero Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions) by 2035. Net Zero Tracker This target only covers Carbon dioxide and does not include historical emissions. Net Zero Tracker As an interim target, AT&T plans to reduce absolute Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions by 63% by 2030 from a 2015 base year. Net Zero Tracker An interesting fact about their environmental policy is that they may invest in carbon offsets for emissions that cannot be eliminated. Net Zero Tracker In addition, …"

Note: Latest GHG and revenue data (based on tradingview.com) are used to calculate GHG
emissions intensity by sector. The color scale of each bubble depends on the GHG intensity (GHG emissions per 1
million USD revenue).

Additional notes: Investing in carbon offsets: Though AT&T aims to reduce its footprint to as close to zero emissions as possible, there may be some sources of emissions that cannot be eliminated. In these cases, we may invest in carbon offsets in the future.
At least 2 years of GHG emissions for scope 1 and 2 are publicly-available and externally-verified
Scope 3 emissions are fully reported and externally-verified
CDP score demonstrates the level of transparent disclosures
Net Zero Commitments by 2050 include an intermediate target and cover all the emissions
Net Zero targets demonstrate a high-level of emergency
Emission reduction targets on a forward-looking basis are ambitious
