Mobilizing a More Sustainable World

Our world is built on connections, with each other, with information, with entertainment. At work, at home and in our cars, we are continuously connected, increasingly mobile and constantly building new networks. We’re driven to mobilize every aspect of this world to make it work even better for you. And as we do so, we look for ways our voice, our expertise, and our technology can help find answers to some of our society’s challenging problems.

For instance, we’re more committed than ever to working with educators, nonprofits and entrepreneurs to improve learning opportunities for students and make them a success in school and ready for careers. Together with Environmental Defense Fund, we’ve developed a toolkit that could save businesses 28 billion gallons of water annually if scaled across U.S. commercial buildings. We drive responsibly as well; with one of the largest commercial fleets in the U.S., we have more than 8,000 alternative-fuel vehicles deployed, helping us avoid using 12.4 million gallons of gasoline since 2009. And we continue to advocate passionately about the perils of texting while driving. Continue reading
