AT&T has issued its Sustainability Report for 2011, publishing solely on the web in an interactive “driver’s-seat” format “that empowers consumers to engage, share, and at the same time, generate a donation to a community-improving nonprofit of their choice…
“The report,” AT&T says, “enables visitors to explore an interactive ‘city’ that is populated by narratives showcasing the ways people are using AT&T products and services to operate more sustainably, as well as the inspiring work the company is doing to improve communities across the world.”
Using the search feature, one can find that AT&T has fielded 5,114 alternative fuel vehicles, “including 3,469 CNG vehicles and 1,617 hybrid electric vehicles.’
Their presence in the AT&T fleet is part of a $565 million commitment to deploy approximately 15,000 AFVs over a ten-year period through 2018.
AT&T says it anticipates saving 2.5 million gallons of gasoline “in 2012 and each subsequent year that our 3,469 compressed natural gas vehicles are in service.”
Most of AT&T’s NGVs are Ford vans converted by BAF. AT&T has also ordered more than 600 Ford Transit Connects, also being converted by BAF.
BAF is a unit of Clean Energy Fuels (NASDAQ:CLNE).
