News Corp: An Environmentally Friendly Company

Admit it – Rupert Murdoch hugging a tree just seems wrong, doesn’t it? Well, it’s actually very right, because News Corporation is one of the greenest companies in the world.

According to the Carbon Disclosure Project – a non-profit organization that discloses the greenhouse effect of major corporations – News Corp. ranked number one among participating media companies, getting a “carbon-neutral” ranking. That ranking essentially means News Corp. does enough good for the planet to offset the bad that it does.

Murdoch, in an internal memo, said the ranking marked just the beginning for News Corp.:

We are well on our way to becoming the innovative, regenerative business we want to be. In the long term, we aim to grow our business without growing our carbon footprint, to power our operations with clean electricity, to minimize solid waste to landfill from our production operations, and to continue to engage our audiences on sustainability issues through partnerships and content of the highest caliber.

Please remember this post the next time someone tells you that FishbowlNY is anti-News Corporation. Thank you.
