Environmental Stewardship

Liberty Media recognizes climate change and adverse impacts on the natural world are among the most pressing challenges facing humanity today. Environmental sustainability has implications for markets, and our investors. Moreover, how we manage our environmental impact matters to our employees, our customers, our business partners, and our other stakeholders.

Across our portfolio of businesses, we are taking environmental action in partnership with our employees, customers, and business partners. As part of these actions, we are focused on those issues that matter to the long-term value of the individual businesses, including the transition and physical risks associated with climate change, our portfolio companies’ energy management, and our portfolio companies’ waste management.

Liberty Climate Initiative

We are committed to supporting our portfolio companies on their paths towards a fully sustainable and low carbon future.

At Liberty Media, we are committed to:

  • Carbon neutral on scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2030 at corporate level
  • Ensuring all portfolio companies publicly report on carbon footprints
  • Encouraging portfolio companies toward emission reductions and low carbon strategy

Liberty will provide support for our portfolio companies through:

  • Co-investment opportunities in large scale power purchase agreements and other green energy investments
  • Annual Sustainability summit for best practices sharing across all portfolio companies
  • Support with carbon footprinting and potential emission reduction opportunities

Our Carbon Footprint

At Liberty, we have a responsibility to reduce the impact our operations have on the planet, and particularly our carbon footprint. This begins with measuring and reducing Liberty Media’s own greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, to both minimize our impact and set an example for our portfolio companies. Below are Liberty Media’s Scopes 1 & 2 emissions for 2021 and 2022.

Carbon Footprint Chart

Liberty’s 2022 scopes 1 & 2 carbon footprint was estimated to be 3,187 metric tons carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e). Our buildings emit .008 tons of CO2e per square foot, which is in line with the average emissions for LEED-certified buildings.

*Liberty Media owns a small space in a third building, but this space is outside our operational boundary and has been excluded; we estimate this space to be less than 2% of our building emissions.
