Reaffirming our carbon neutral goal at World Economic Forum.
This week at the 50th World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Hans Vestberg reaffirmed our goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2035 to political and business leaders from around the world. “Everything from sustainability, climate, 5G, and the fourth industrial revolution, those are things we are really impacting,” said Hans. “There’s so many challenges, that I think what we are doing everyday at Verizon with all our V Teamers is so important.” From being the first U.S. telecommunications company to issue a green bond for sustainability investments, to a company-wide volunteer effort for climate protection, we are leading by example through our commitment to a carbon neutral future.
