      Sky and UTL win ‘Best Business Partnership’ award at National Recycling Awards 2015

      http://corporate.sky.com/media-centr...ng-awards-2015

      Sky and Unipart Technology Logistics (UTL) were presented with the ‘Best Business Partnership’ award at last night’s National Recycling Awards in London.

      These awards celebrate excellence and innovation in the recycling and resource management sector and the ‘Best Business Partnership’ category recognises collaborative achievements in transforming recycling practices. The key focus of our work with UTL is our set-up box take-back initiative, where 100% of products returned are refurbished or recycled, with nothing sent to landfill. Over the course of our partnership, UTL have developed efficient pick up and drop off processes that save fuel and emissions, worked with us on reusable packaging and supported Sky Rainforest Rescue which aims to help save one billion trees in the Amazon.

      Receiving the award, Giles Harvey, Sky Supply Chain Director, said: “Sky is delighted to be recognised for its work with long standing partner UTL in reducing resource waste. Sky continues to introduce new products and services, and we look to UTL for operational excellence and innovation to ensure we deliver the best experience for customers, in the most sustainable way possible.”

      Read more about how we are developing more sustainable products year on year.

      Their best achievement on responsible sourcing;
      For example, in the newest version of our wireless router, Sky Hub 2, we designed the logo into the plastic mould casing to remove the need for separate silver foiling materials.
      Im sure some would say, time better spent making it a better router.
      Sky must struggle with green stuff, all those rusty dishes and old sky boxes still in use, how much really gets recycled. Probably most to ebay more likely.
      Do expect the majority of those Wireless Boosters they sent out a while ago ended up in landfill.

      My wireless booster went back into the box within 5 minutes - it was rubbish! It's sat in the "spares" box but I should really re-cycle it.

      Or I might just donate it to an unsuspecting punter on the Sky Community - there's always somebody looking for a freebie!
