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.

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 2019 and 2020.

Carbon Footprint Chart

Liberty’s 2020 scopes 1 & 2 carbon footprint was estimated to be 2,518 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.

Environmental Stewardship in Action

Liberty Media’s principal businesses and assets include our consolidated subsidiaries SiriusXM, Formula 1, Atlanta Braves, and our equity affiliate Live Nation. While Liberty Media’s influence upon individual companies varies, by working in partnership, sharing best practices and learnings, and leveraging our collective scale, we and our portfolio companies strive to enhance long-term value for all our respective stakeholders.
