Media and telecommunications giant Sky plc already uses mostly renewable electricity and joined RE100 with a commitment to go 100% renewable by 2020.

The company is on track to reduce its carbon intensity by 50% before 2020, now already at 38% reduction against its baseline. Since 2010 all of the electricity Sky has purchased from the grid in the UK & Ireland is 100% renewable. In addition the company reduces its emissions to net zero for the Group through the purchase of voluntary carbon offsets.

Fiona Ball, Head of Responsible Business, Sky, said: "We have invested in on-site renewable energy across our sites, working to reach a public target to obtain 20% of our energy consumption from owned or 'controlled' renewables. To date, we’ve invested over £8.5m in technologies ranging from a bespoke combined cooling and heating plant (CCHP) and a 100KW wind turbine, to solar panels and biomass boilers."
