Serving the Greater Good of Our Communities

At TEGNA, our enduring mission to serve the greater good of our communities centers on integrating purpose-driven commitments into our overall strategy.

Our Board’s Public Policy and Regulation Committee oversees and guides our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices and initiatives. It reviews and reports on these efforts periodically to our Board.

Civic 50 and Digiday Honors

We are especially proud that our efforts in 2021 were recognized for the second consecutive year by the global nonprofit Points of Light’s Civic 50 as one of the nation’s 50 most community-minded companies in the U.S. We also are honored to receive an inaugural Greater Good Award from Digiday for the COVID-19 relief efforts our stations led in their local communities.


TEGNA is intensifying our evolutionary focus on being responsible stewards of our resources, recognizing the necessity for real progress on our planet’s environmental and sustainability challenges. We have enhanced our oversight, programs, reporting and accountability to further our commitment to minimize our carbon footprint and protect and preserve the environment.
In 2021, we took several steps to inform our long-term environmental goals and action plans, including completing a comprehensive greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventory that included our scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions from our direct operations, as well as relevant indirect scope 3 GHG emissions across our value chain.
