Liberty Global has announced its environmental targets as part of the company’s commitment to Corporate Responsibility (CR). Liberty Global says it aims to improve the energy efficiency of its electricity consumption by 15% every year through 2020 (in kWh/TB), and be five times more carbon efficient (in metric tons of CO2e/TB) by 2020, using 2012 as its base year.
“Each year we embed our culture of Corporate Responsibility more deeply into our business, while adapting to the inevitable changes in our fast-paced markets, the aspirations of our increasingly sophisticated customers, and the significant growth of our company,” says Rick Westerman, head of Liberty Global’s CR Committee. “2013 was a pivotal year in which we acquired Virgin Media in the UK, creating substantial scale and greater opportunities to pursue our CR agenda. With the publication of these environmental targets, we are challenging our organization to achieve even more in the coming years.”
