Primary Climate Goal
AT&T's target annual Scope 1 + 2 emissions for 2030 should be equal to 2,910 Kt = 63% * 7,864 Kt, according to the company's stated climate goal.
In order to achieve this goal, AT&T would need to reduce its emissions at least by -290 Kt per annum over the period from 2023 to 2030:
-290 Kt = ( 2,910 Kt - 5,230 Kt ) / (2030 - 2022)
This translates into a -5.6% reduction in 2023.
The projected range shown on the chart is based on the Exerica's algorithm which takes account of both the company's stated goal and its past performance.

Science Based Targets initiative In October 2021 SBTi developed and launched world's first net zero standard, providing framework and tools for companies to set science-based net zero targets and limit global temperature rise above pre-industrial levels to 1.5 °C.

GHG emissions and Carbon intensity
Scope 1 + 2 GHG emissions (in tons of CO2e) divided by the company's Revenues (in USDm) for the same period
AT&T reported Total CO2e Emissions - Market-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 31 December 2022 at 5,230 Kt (-318 /-5.7% y-o-y). At the same time, carbon intensity grew to 43 t (+1.9/+4.6% y-o-y).
AT&T's Scope 3 emissions was up at 13,100 Kt (
The company is committed to reducing Scope 1 + 2 by 63% by 2030 from a base year 2015, which translates into the estimated reduction of -290 Kt per annum over the period of FY2023 - FY2030. This science-based target is aligned with Paris Agreement to limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.
AT&T aims to achive carbon neutrality across its operations (Scope 1 + 2) in 2035. Companies normally become carbon neutral with the help of the acquisition of carbon offsets rather than absolute reductions in their own greenhouse emissions. Also, carbon neutrality does not include non-CO2 GHG emissions.
