Sky broadcasting carbon-neutral shows, for all its UK-commissioned Sky Originals productions, it has become the ‘first broadcaster’ to offset the emissions.

In its annual report, the company, which has committed to a 2030 net zero target, notes it has managed to more than halve its operational intensity across the business and 70% of the energy it used in 2019 came from renewable sources.

The Sky TV network, which reaches an estimated 120 million people across Europe or 23 million households, has previously pledged by 2022 to open one of the world’s most sustainable film and TV studios.

The climate plan rolled out by the company also includes a zero-emissions fleet project of 5,000 vehicles.

Sky Group Chief Executive Jeremy Darroch, commented: “Every company depends on the environment, and we have a responsibility to protect it. We are taking action now – because the world can’t wait.

WWF Chief Executive Tanya Steele, said : “We hope that Sky’s pledge will inspire and support customers and communities to live a lower-carbon lifestyle.

“More companies urgently need to follow Sky’s lead and commit to a science-based target, limiting global temperature rise to no more than 1.5°C.”
