T-Mobile was recently recognised by CDP and JUST Capital for its continued commitment to sustainability. It got an A- for its 2022 CDP Climate Change disclosure and was ranked in the top 20 of JUST Capital's 2023 Rankings of America's Most Just Companies.

T-Mobile has pledged to reduce its carbon footprint (i.e. the amount of greenhouse gases it releases into the atmosphere) to zero by 2040 through various initiatives such as transitioning to renewable energy sources, reducing energy consumption, and offsetting emissions that cannot be eliminated through these efforts. This is a significant step in the company's sustainability efforts and sets a strong example for other companies to follow.

The company has also signed onto The Climate Pledge, which shows its commitment to reaching the goals of the Paris Agreement 10 years early and being net-zero carbon across its entire business by 2040.

“As we know sustainability is important to our customers and stakeholders, T-Mobile has made great progress in reducing our environmental footprint—and now we're taking even bigger steps to reduce our carbon emissions with a commitment to meeting SBTi’s Net-Zero Standard,” said Mike Sievert, T-Mobile CEO. “We are proud that we are doing our part to create a sustainable future for all—including becoming the first in U.S. wireless to set this bold target. And we hope companies like ours—and the partners and suppliers we work alongside—will join us in setting their own aggressive longer-term goals like these.”

T-Mobile's net-zero goal has been validated by SBTi using the Net-Zero Standard, which is a framework for company targets aligned with the latest climate science. This makes T-Mobile the first U.S. wireless company to set a net-zero goal for all three emission scopes (1, 2, and 3), which cover direct emissions from its operations and facilities, indirect emissions from purchased electricity, and other indirect emissions from its supply chain.

By setting this goal and having it validated by SBTi, T-Mobile is demonstrating its commitment to reducing its carbon footprint and contributing to a sustainable future.

“While T-Mobile's net-zero goal is a decades-long endeavour, we know how important it is to take definitive actions now to reduce our environmental impact for future generations,” said Janice Kapner, chief communications and corporate responsibility officer at T-Mobile. "We are committed to making measurable progress and holding ourselves accountable through strong governance practices, consistent and clear reporting, and ongoing collaboration with leading sustainability experts."

“We’re excited that T-Mobile is signing The Climate Pledge and committing to reaching the Paris Agreement 10 years early,” said Sally Fouts, Global Lead of The Climate Pledge at Amazon. "T-Mobile has set and met ambitious goals for using renewable energy and cutting carbon across all of its operations. We are thrilled to see the thorough and well-thought-out plan they have made to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2040."

T-Mobile has a strong history of sustainability efforts and has previously achieved significant milestones, such as being the first U.S. wireless company to reach 100% renewable electricity and setting science-based carbon reduction goals.

T-Mobile was recently recognised by CDP and JUST Capital for its continued commitment to sustainability. It got an A- for its 2022 CDP Climate Change disclosure and was ranked in the top 20 of JUST Capital's 2023 Rankings of America's Most Just Companies, including number one in the telecom industry for environmental impact. These accomplishments show that T-Mobile is a leader in sustainability and is committed to making the world a better place.
