News Corporation is committed to addressing its impact on climate change and to lowering the energy use of its businesses.
A Global Energy Initiative spans the whole of News Corporation. Every business in every territory has an ambitious target to be carbon neutral by 2010.
This commitment is obvious at Newsprinters. The move to our new manufacturing sites, with brand new buildings and equipment with the latest technology brought drastic improvements in efficiency.
Local site teams make improvements and engage employees. At Newsprinters they altered lighting systems, redesigned the way they worked and even passed third party audits of the environmental management systems.
These successes are encouraged and shared across the globe by the GEI team by communication with the business energy initiative leaders and a dedicated GEI website.
We intend to make energy efficiency part of our everyday operations. We are proud of our achievements but we plan to do even more.
