AT&T Saves 2.5 Million Gallons of Gasoline in 2011

June 19, 2012

DALLAS – Alternative fuels continue to play a significant role in AT&T’s commitment to going green, according to the company’s recently released 2011 Sustainability Report.

In 2011, AT&T built upon its ongoing efforts to better manage energy, invest in alternative-fuel sources, and encourage the use of renewable resources. Wireless fleet management solutions for commercial truck and van fleets also helped to reduce idle time, better manage miles driven per day, improve route planning, and reduce travel time and costs.

At the end of 2011, AT&T had 5,114 alternative-fuel vehicles (AFVs) in service, including: 3,469 compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles; 1,617 hybrids; three all-electric vehicles (a Smith Newton cargo truck in St. Louis and two Ford Transit Connect Electric vans in Dallas and Los Angeles); and 25 extended-range electric vehicles (Chevrolet Volts), located in nine states nationwide.

According to AT&T, the deployment of the CNG vehicles alone helped the company avoid the purchase of more than 2.5 million gallons of unleaded gasoline in 2011, and will continue the same progress each subsequent year.

For 2012, AT&T’s goals include:

  • Replacing retiring passenger vehicles with alternative-fuel models and deploying up to 8,000 CNG service vehicles through 2014.
  • Using B-20 biodiesel on the Fan Zone Tour in 2012.

AT&T ranked No. 2 on Automotive Fleet’s Top 300 Commercial Fleets listing and No. 5 on the Top 50 Green Fleets for 2012.
