Sky has announced it is aiming to be carbon neutral by 2030 and will look to cut the emissions created from the use of its products, its suppliers across the world and by its business.
According to the broadcaster, it will look to:
- Make all of its tech products more energy efficient
- Develop the world’s most sustainable film and TV studios
- Make every Sky original production, TV channel, show and film net zero carbon
- Transform its 5,000 vehicles to create a zero emissions fleet
- Help the 11,000 companies that work with Sky, whether they’re making Sky boxes or producing the next TV series, on their path to net zero carbon
- Plant trees, mangroves and seagrass to absorb the carbon it can’t cut… yet
Sky said it will seek validation of its targets from the SBTi (Science-Based Target Initiative) and will publicly report its carbon footprint.
Speaking about the plan, Jeremy Darroch, Sky’s group chief executive, said: “We are entering a critical decade on the long road to climate recovery, and all businesses have the opportunity to accelerate progress and become part of the solution.
“Every business depends on and is fundamentally connected to the environment, and we have a responsibility to protect it. We need to take action now – because the world can’t wait.
“We’re on the journey, and we want to bring everyone with us. Sky Zero will transform our business, advocate for change and inspire our 24 million customers to go zero.”
