Making Our Business Greener

Environmental leadership is not about competition. We all share the same environment and, ultimately, the same responsibility for preserving and protecting it.

We aim to conserve natural resources and minimize waste through source reduction and recycling; handling and disposing of wastes through safe, environmentally responsible methods; encouraging energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources; and encouraging our business partners and suppliers to strive for the same high levels of environmental performance.

Energy and Greenhouse Gas Reduction

Many of our businesses have been addressing environmental issues for decades. We seek ways to increase our energy efficiency, use renewable energy sources and reduce greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change. Much work has already been done at each of our divisions to reduce energy use and associated emissions. Here are a few examples of our divisions' efforts to reduce energy use:

Green Feature Film and Television Production

It is one of the biggest stories of our times: reducing the world's consumption of fossil fuels. We don't just cover the story through our journalism and documentaries—we're living it in film and television production. We aim to produce films and television programming in harmony with the environment. In addition, we are working both within our industry and within our studios to reduce the energy and resource consumption associated with film and television production.

Recycling and Waste Reduction

We practice recycling and waste reduction in our operations to help society make the best use of both natural and recycled resources. We minimize waste through careful sourcing and extensive use of recycling. We handle and dispose of wastes through safe, environmentally responsible methods.

Green Building

Time Warner's divisions frequently consider green building concepts when embarking in new construction or retrofitting efforts.
