Future360 spoke with Jim Gowen, Chief Sustainability Officer at Verizon, to learn about the company's sustainable initiatives.

Verizon set a 2020 goal to improve their carbon intensity metric by 50%. In two and a half years they have reached a 37% improvement.

The company launched its "Powerful Answers" campaign to answer the question of how they can use their networks to really bring about social innovation across energy management, healthcare, and sustainable solutions. Verizon will be awarding individuals or small businesses over 10 million dollars in creating those solutions using Verizon's technology as a backbone.
