Verizon is already one of the largest buyers of alternative energy in the United State and is one of the largest corporate green bond issuers in the U.S. Our green bond program is instrumental to our efforts to meet our long-term operational net zero goal and interim renewable energy goal. Since 2019, we have issued $4 billion in green bonds. We have allocated nearly $3 billion of net proceeds, and intend to allocate the remaining net proceeds, primarily to finance, in whole or in part, VPPAs for new renewable energy projects.
Verizon will measure progress by tracking percent of energy sourced from renewable sources with a goal of reaching 50%.
