Sky hits its 100 per cent renewable electricity

Sky has today announced it has met its target to source 100 per cent renewable electricity across its entire business, as it continues towards its ambition to be net-zero by 2030.

It has met its RE100 commitment through on-site generation, buying renewable electricity tariffs that are backed-up by traceable certificates, and where it cannot control the tariff, Energy Attribute Certificates. Sky has also set a target of generating at least a fifth of its own electricity on all new buildings and large refurbishments.

The company has also published the reporting methodology for its Scope 3 emissions which are responsible for 98 per cent of its total value chain emissions and includes the use of Sky products in customers’ homes and the emissions of its supply chain. By sharing its approach in full, Sky hopes to enable and inform others on the journey to net-zero.

Fiona Ball, Sky group director bigger picture, said: “Transparently sharing data on our net-zero transition is central to Sky’s approach. We know that business can accelerate the journey to a zero-carbon future by sharing knowledge, learnings and data as freely and widely as possible. We have published our Scope 3 reporting methodology to enable others to go on the journey with us, because net-zero won’t be achieved by individuals but through collective action.”
