Our Commitment to the Environment

Much of our content focuses on making smart, efficient use of resources and making the world—or at least your corner of the world—a more beautiful place. We bring that same level of joyful ingenuity, plus diligent care and responsibility, to our efforts as environmental stewards of the business.

A Proactive Approach to Environmental Sustainability

We work each day to deepen consumer relationships and deliver maximum value to advertisers and investors with minimal impact on the planet. We’re committed to becoming more environmentally sound in our daily operations, value chain and procurement processes. That includes responsibly sourcing the paper we use for publishing, conserving energy, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving our recycling and waste management program, and managing water use.

Responsible Paper

We’re committed to paper purchasing policies that support the sustainable management of forests and other natural resources. As a major paper buyer, we’re able to leverage our position to promote responsible forestry through supplier and stakeholder partnerships. Learn more about our focus on responsible paper.

Waste & Recycling

We’re continuously working to minimize waste, and recycle and reuse materials across our corporate offices wherever possible. Learn more about our waste and recycling efforts.

Energy & Transportation

We’ve set a goal to reduce absolute greenhouse gas emissions 12.5% by the end of fiscal 2024. This goal includes our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions, along with the employee travel portion of Scope 3. This year we quantified our Scope 3 emissions, so we are exploring the possibility of adjusting our Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas reduction goal to a comprehensive goal across all Scopes. Learn more about our focus on clean energy and transportation.

Water Conservation

Ample access to clean and safe water is a fundamental human right. In addition to water conservation efforts undertaken within our supply chain, we have taken steps to conserve water at our office locations and continuously seek reduction opportunities.
