The small steps made at News Corp Australia towards environmental sustainability are just the beginning.

We’re starting with one – ourselves. But while one company acting alone can make a difference, it’s the collective changes made by everyone that can really change the future of the planet. That’s why News Corp Australia is committed to working with our industry, our people, our suppliers, our business partners and our communities towards a more environmentally sustainable future.



Between now and 2015 we will:

  • Communicate the Company’s sustainability goals and progress with best practice transparency to all stakeholders
  • Create a culture of environmental leadership both internally and externally for the organisation
  • Actively engage with our largest suppliers to help reduce environmental impacts




  • Identify new opportunities to engage with readers, customers and advertisers
  • Publicly report energy use and emissions
  • Engage and educate our employees to reduce their environmental footprint

Taking leadership

Environmental leadership at News Corp Australia means:
