We are conscious of the world around us.
Committed to reducing our carbon intensity
Having exceeded the goal we set in 2009 to reduce our carbon intensity by 50% by 2020, we set a new goal in 2016 to cut our carbon intensity in half over 2016 levels by 2025.
We are well on our way to meeting or exceeding that goal.

Investing in green energy
Over the past six years, Verizon has made it a priority to deploy more green energy resources — such as solar and fuel cell technology — into our facilities. We’ve set a new goal to add 24MW of green energy in our operations by 2025.
Through our device recycling program, we reward customers who recycle their wireless devices and keep them out of landfills.
