AT&T Awarded for Sustainable Business Practices By Sonoco

  • Sonoco recognized AT&T for its social, diversity, and environmentally responsible efforts.
  • AT&T is committed to integrating community concerns into its practices and working toward a sustainable future.

Sonoco, one of the largest diversified global packaging and services companies in the world, recently recognized AT&T as a 2014 Sonoco Sustainable Supplier at the company’s annual Supplier Diversity Business Conference and networking dinner.

This annual award recognizes Sonoco’s suppliers who demonstrate “measurable, strategic and transparent social, diversity and environmental responsibility efforts” and highlights the important role that Sonoco places on the use of diverse suppliers. This is the second year Sonoco has recognized the category of Sonoco Sustainable Suppliers. As the account lead for four years with Sonoco, I was honored to attend and be recognized on behalf of AT&T.

This year, Sonoco specifically showcased the suppliers who they believe are driving change within Sonoco and in the industry as a whole. AT&T was recognized for this sustainability award through an application process that included 120 suppliers. The applicants were judged on a wide range of issues including their environmental policies, goals supporting water and energy conservation, reduction of GHG emissions, and waste disposal practices; an annual sustainability or corporate social responsibility report; and practices regarding the reporting of greenhouse gas emissions, to name a few.

AT&T is committed to sustainable business practices throughout its operations, and to integrating the concerns of our communities into our business strategies and promoting responsible business practices throughout the industry. We look forward to continuing to work with customers like Sonoco toward a more sustainable future.
