2014 Verizon Annual Report

A global leader in broadband and other wireless and wireline communication services, Verizon's 2014 Annual Report and Corporate Responsibility Supplement demonstrate how the company is applying its powerful technology toward solving pressing social problems.

The company’s strategy is to use its technology to make measurable, positive impacts, particularly for people in disadvantaged communities.

By supplying digital know-how and mobile devices to underserved schools, Verizon is seeing stronger student engagement, deeper interest in mathematics and science — and, for the second straight year, improved academic achievement.

The report shows what Verizon is doing to:

  • Use its innovative capabilities to improve education, healthcare and energy management.
  • Minimize its environmental footprint.
  • Set goals, track progress and report on performance, while committing to responsible business practices.

Highlights from the 2014 report include:

  • Education:  By supplying digital know-how and mobile devices to underserved schools, Verizon is seeing stronger student engagement, deeper interest in mathematics and science — and, for the second straight year, improved academic achievement.
  • Sustainability:  Verizon’s smart solutions enabled their customers to better manage their buildings and fleets, run power grids and telecommute — reducing CO2 emissions by 13 million to 17 million metric tons — enough to offset the emissions of three million cars.
  • Healthcare: Verizon’s mobile technology is helping patients with heart disease, respiratory disease and diabetes better manage their chronic conditions so they can live longer, healthier lives.
