Sky has hit its target to power its entire business with 100% renewable electricity.

The media and entertainment giant states the shift has contributed to a 22.7% reduction in emissions across its Scope 1 and 2 emissions from a 2018 baseline and notes it has made significant progress towards its goal of becoming net zero carbon by 2030.

It states the renewable power is sourced through a mixture of on-site generation, renewable electricity tariffs and Energy Attribute Certificates.

The multinational has also published its Scope 3 reporting methodology – these emissions account for 98% of its total value chain emissions and include the use of Sky products and supply chain emissions.

It is now working to replace estimated Scope 3 information with primary data to increase the accuracy of its emissions footprint.

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.”
