EES has posted a number of blogs regarding sustainability initiatives, and how quickly they can improve a company’s bottom line. Last year AT&T implemented 4,200 energy efficiency projects at its facilities. These projects ranged from lighting changes to network upgrades, and resulted in an annualized energy savings of $44 million.
In 2010, AT&T participated in the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) Climate Corps program, an initiative launched by EDF to help leading companies shave operational costs and reduce emissions by identifying large-scale energy efficiency opportunities. According to the EDF, AT&T is a prime example of how energy efficiency projects can provide benefits to both the company and the environment.
“AT&T is on the right path by aggressively exploring ways to reduce energy consumption,” said Victoria Mills of EDF. “Through our Climate Corps program, we were able to help AT&T identify a potential savings of 80% in electricity usage associated with lighting use across more than 100 million square feet of space. This underscores that a compelling business case for energy efficiency can be made at any company.”
