Jay Stone spearheaded a lighting retrofit project to decrease energy costs and improve the printing plant's lighting quality.


See Stone discuss his work at News Corporation.


Jonathan Stone spent the summer of 2010 with News Corporation, a leading media and entertainment company with business units in five continents around the globe. 
Stone, an MBA student in the Class of 2011 at the Stern School of Business, New York University, spent a portion of his time working with News Corporation's Global Energy Initiative on corporate sustainability strategy such as the creation of employee engagement programs.


The majority of his summer was spent at Dow Jones' Bronx Printing Plant where he worked to identify and implement energy efficiency projects that would decrease the company's carbon footprint and increase its bottom line. His main project in this regard was the spearheading of a $230,000 lighting retrofit that could improve the plant's lighting quality and worker productivity while simultaneously decreasing their energy costs and associated carbon footprint.

Potential Impact

In total, Stone identified projects that could reduce annual energy costs by approximately $179,524, saving 899,903 kilowatt hours of energy per year and reducing 942 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
