AT&T Mobility looking to lead industry in sustainability

January 1, 2013 |

In Georgia, AT&T Mobility has become an industry leader in sustainability by using plant-based plastic, reducing packaging material, and selling energy-efficient phone chargers. The company reduced almost 500 tons of paper and plastic waste in 2010 and 2011. AT&T Mobility uses 30 percent plant based material in its packaging, which is made from ethanol harvested from sugarcane. The plant plastic is more expensive but the energy and waste savings totaled nearly $42 million in 2011. Paper used in packaging is 100 percent recycled stock and the ink is produced from vegetables, not petroleum.
