AT&T reaches halfway mark to investment commitment

November 2013

Telecoms giant AT&T has reached the halfway mark of its commitment to invest up to $565m to deploy approximately 15,000 alternative fuel vehicles over the course of a 10-year period up to 2018.

Since AT&T began its commitment, the company has placed over 7,500 alternative fuel vehicles in 44 states across the US. The CNG van is part of AT&T’s plan to deploy up to 8,000 CNG vehicles to its fleet over a five year period through the end of first quarter 2014 – the largest US corporate commitment to CNG to date.

“With the help and support of community leaders all over the country, we’ve reached this major milestone and brought thousands of alternative fuel vehicles to US roads,” said Jerome Webber, vice president, AT&T Global Fleet Operations.

“This is more than just an arbitrary number. These 7,500 vehicles represent reduced emissions, improved fuel efficiency and reduced operational costs. They illustrate our company-wide commitment to sustainability in the communities where we live, work, and play.”
