The New York Times Company Announces Pledge for Net Zero Carbon Emissions by 2030
The New York Times Company’s journalistic mission is to seek the truth and help people understand the world. As part of its impact on the world, the company is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and identifying opportunities to improve the sustainability of its business operations. In order to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, The Times needed to first understand its current impact. In 2022, the company conducted a greenhouse gas emissions inventory and plans to begin publishing its Scope 1 and 2 emissions data in 2023. Scope 1 are direct emissions from owned or controlled sources, and Scope 2 are indirect emissions from the generation of purchased energy. The exercise of measuring its footprint has informed the company’s strategy for emissions reductions across its operations. The Times is focused on operating efficient spaces, using resources responsibly and reducing its greenhouse gas emissions. The New York Times Company will continue to explore initiatives and opportunities to improve sustainability efforts and energy efficiency. This includes continuing to convert its roughly 70 vehicle delivery fleet from gas to electric and continuing updates to its headquars and production facility at College Point to be more energy-efficient.
