Sustainable Development

When we started working on this issue of The Insider magazine, we lived in a very different world. Then the global pandemic hit, and overnight, our lives and our companies changed in ways we never imagined.

Although it was a shock to our lives, businesses, and markets, COVID-19, like crises before it, allowed us, or rather forced us, to think outside the box and change the way we live and the way we do business. Priorities changed as did sustainable development initiatives across most industries.

In 2019, Hearst completed its California Flats Solar Project, Jack Ranch, installing a million solar modules that produce clean, renewable electricity for the likes of Apple and Pacific Gas and Electric.

Jack Ranch displaces over 109,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions every year—the equivalent of removing ~22,000 cars from the road.

Iberia Airline removed printed newspapers and magazines from its flights in 2019 and sponsored access to a digital media platform with over 7,000 digital publications for passengers to enjoy on their personal devices.

This sustainability initiative removed over 640 tons of paper from Iberia’s aircraft — 615 tons of CO2 in one year – winning the flag carrier airline of Spain FITUR’s Tourism Excellence Award for Sustainability and Green Initiatives award.
