CAMPAIGN: Sustainability at 21st Century Fox


21st Century Fox is committed to minimizing our environmental impacts, growing sustainably, and inspiring others to take action. Each year, our businesses come together to celebrate Earth Day, giving our colleagues a chance to learn how they can protect the planet and support the communities in which they live and work. Here are a few ways our businesses are getting involved:

FOX Broadcasting Company continued its month-long "Green It. Mean It." campaign, an annual initiative to raise awareness of environmental issues and give viewers practical tips toward making their homes and workplaces more sustainable. Talent from all FOX shows record the PSAs every year, and this year's campaign features the stars of such hit shows as Empire, Gotham, and Last Man on Earth.

On April 16, the company hosted its annual Eco Fair on the Fox Studios Lot in Los Angeles. The fair brings together dozens of vendors and nonprofits to provide local, organic food and educate attendees on ways to protect the planet. The organizations present included TreePeople, Blue Can Water, Ecos, Goat & Kettle, Sow Swell, Zero Cost Solar, and the Theodore Payne Foundation. Fox also hosted gardening workshops and info sessions about eco-friendly commuting.

In New York, colleagues enjoyed a seasonal foods cooking class, free tickets to the New York Botanical Garden, and a chance to participate in New York Cares Day, a city-wide volunteering initiative to clean up the city's parks. New York-area colleagues spent the day paining fences and spreading mulch at Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem. 21st Century Fox has supported New York Cares since 1999.
