reduction of our carbon footprint since 2008
We are committed to be Carbon Net Zero by 2030 across Scope 1 and 2 emissions and by 2045 across Scope 3.
Every team and function at Clear Channel plays an active role in our advancing journey towards Carbon Net Zero.
As a responsible media and infrastructure business, sustainability is embedded into how we operate and we are supporting our industry, advertiser, municipality and business partners reach their environmental targets.
As part of our progress towards a Carbon Net Zero future, we are employing measures and investing in technologies that reduce our energy consumption.
We have been making our infrastructure more energy efficient for years and are setting increasingly ambitious targets, continuing to build on previous energy efficiencies.
We have for example replaced fluorescent lighting with bespoke LED alternatives, reduced digital advertising display hours and are introducing solar lighting on bus shelters as well as installing 50% more energy efficient digital displays.
We have focused on reducing carbon footprint and other environmental impacts across our operations, estate and premises while pioneering other environmental initiatives.
We were the first Out of Home media owner to upgrade to LED tubes in Classic advertising panels nationwide at scale.
We have implemented an Enhanced Washing System, using rainwater to clean our estate and reducing water usage by 50% per wash.
We have been introducing 100% recyclable bus shelters and solar-powered courtesy lighting.
Rolling out Living Roofs and Vertical Meadows nationwide.
We operate in urban environments, so we prioritise having the cleanest vehicles to improve the quality of life for residents in the communities we serve.
As a result, we're replacing company vehicles with electric or hybrid models only. With 78% of our van fleet being already hybrid or electric, we’re going full speed ahead to complete electrification by 2030.
Working with our partners
Beyond our operations and estate, we have been supporting environmental initiatives in the communities in which we operate, investing in eco projects that make a difference, volunteering to improve the environment and supporting the vital work of our charity partners.
Our sustainability efforts are underpinned by wider industry commitments. Since 2020, we have joined Ad Net Zero, UN Global Compact and Carbon Disclosure Project.
Our Environmental Management System is ISO 14001 accredited covering all of our business location in the UK. Each location has an environmental leader and we have a business wide Environmental Steering Committee on which four of our leadership team sit.
Since 2021 Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings has been committed to the UN Global Compact corporate responsibility initiative and its principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption.
