Sky Earmarked for Climate Praise

environmental award for Sky

For millions of people across Europe, Sky is little more than the company whose services keep us entertained when we get home in the evening. Such is the nature of that service that we often take little time to consider the company behind the entertainment (that will soon be in 4K). In reality, Sky have proven time and time again that they’re a company with a social conscience and an eye for more than just a quarterly profit. That means that whilst the likes of BT are racing to compete on broadcasting fronts, Sky are operating initiatives like the Sky Academy, which through their Living for Sport initiative, Skills Studios, Careers Labs and Scholarships have boosted confidence and job prospects for hundreds of thousands of young Britons.

That’s not all though, because Sky are also one of the biggest companies in the UK to truly take climate change seriously. So seriously, in fact, that they’ve now been identified as a global leader for their actions and strategies in this area. That’s resulted in a position on the Climate A-List, created by CDP, the international non-profit that drives sustainable economies. 113 so-called “A-Listers” appear on the list, which was drawn at the request of 882 investors, who represent in total more than a third of the world’s invested capital.

Every year, thousands of companies submit their annual climate disclosures to CDP for independent assessment against their scoring methodology. It’s a point of pride for these businesses that they’re attempting to make the world a cleaner place to be. For Sky, that means being the first media company in the world to become carbon neutral in 2006, and since then moving to make their entire business from top to bottom, including generating their own energy. Indeed, Sky also operate the Sky Rainforest Rescue campaign with WWF, which helps to protect one billion trees in the Amazon. This kind of activity is not only great for the environment, but wins Sky plenty of plaudits on the Sky contact number 0844.

CDP’s executive chairman and co-founder Paul Dickinson says: “The influence of the corporation is mighty. We congratulate the A List companies that are illuminating the path to a low carbon future through their climate leadership. The momentum of business action on climate change suggests we are reaching a tipping point, where companies are poised to achieve their full potential. They need ambitious policy at both a national and international level that will support them in this regard and will catalyze participation from industry at scale.”

Sky are amongst 5% of the corporations participating in CDP’s climate change programme to be awarded a position on the Climate A-List, which can be viewed at this link. It’s an indication that Sky’s efforts to reduce emissions and mitigate climate change are working, and alongside the other trail blazing companies, making real change happen.

Fiona Ball, Head of Responsible Business, commented: ''At Sky, we know operating efficiently, saving energy and using natural resources wisely will help us build a better business, and contribute to a more sustainable future for everyone. We’re delighted to have our work to minimise our environmental impact, and to create better, more sustainable products has been recognised in the CDP Climate A List.''
