We’re Going Net Zero Carbon by 2030. Because the World Can’t Wait.

Sky commits to become net zero carbon by 2030.

We're planting trees, mangroves and seagrass and campaigning with WWF to restore carbon sinks to absorb and store carbon globally. But we can't let nature do all the hard work, we have to reduce how much carbon we put out, too.

From bringing you the world's greatest sporting events, to creating original dramas, documentaries and comedies, to reporting on international news, we're making changes to so we release less carbon into the atmosphere, committing to reduce emissions by 50% across the board.

Whether it's using more sustainable materials, converting our engineer's vehicles to 100% electric, or supporting our 24 million customers to #GoZero too. We believe we all have a responsibility to make a commitment. To achieve net zero carbon to protect the things we love.

Together. Today. Because the world can't wait.
