The world is undergoing rapid change from the societies and economies in which we live and work to the environment that surrounds us. I believe that our Environmental, Social and Governance integrations can help influence that change by creating real and positive impacts in all of these areas and make a meaningful difference in the markets we operate and serve.

Emily Le Coz
Managing Editor, Investigations

The journalism that my team produces shines a light on injustices and inequities throughout the nation and holds powerful people to account. It is by doing this type of work that we can bring about meaningful change and make our world safer and more sustainable for everyone. This is why I’m passionate about journalism, and it’s why I’m pleased to be a part of the team that produced ҹ̽’s first ESG Report. ҹ̽ has made a commitment to supporting diversity, inclusivity and equity both inside our organization and throughout the communities where we are located. We are mindful of our environmental impact, and we are dedicated to sharing this knowledge with our readers. ҹ̽ plays a key role creating a more sustainable planet, and I’m excited to be a part of it.
