      Sky named as one of top 10 Green Companies in the World

      https://corporate.sky.com/media-cent...s-in-the-world

      Sky has been named one of the Top 10 Green Companies in the World in Newsweek’s Green Rankings 2016. The award is one of the world’s most recognised measures of a business’s environmental performance, acknowledging Skys’ commitment to reducing its environmental impact and helping to tackle climate change.

      Fiona Ball, Head of Responsible Business at Sky said: ‘This is an exciting year for us at Sky, as we celebrate 10 years of being carbon neutral and continue to make great progress against one of our key targets to halve our gross emissions relative to revenue by 2020, against a 2008 baseline. We’ve also recently signed up to RE100 and We Mean Business, and as part of the commitments we’ll be working to go 100% renewable, right across our business, something we have achieved in the UK and Ireland for many years.

      “There is so much going on right across our business to make sure we are as energy efficient as possible and playing our part to help tackle climate change – from the teams that have designed and built our new buildings to high environmental standards (BREEAM Excellent) and packed full of renewable energy sources, to the work we do with our suppliers to help them measure and drive down their own energy use – this ranking is great recognition for everyone that works hard on a day-to-day basis to make great things happen – we’re delighted!’


      The ranking is based on research from Corporate Knights and HIP (Human Impact + Profit) Investor Inc., and the results are based on the environmental performance of the world’s 500 largest publicly-traded companies by market capitalisation.

      BT and Sky Enter the Top 10 Most Green Companies in the World - ISPreview UK
      BT and Sky Enter the Top 10 Most Green Companies in the World

      A new study, which examined the environmental performance (i.e. corporate sustainability and environmental impact) of the world’s largest publicly-traded companies by market capitalisation, has ranked BT Group as the 3rd best in the world and Sky PLC (Sky Broadband) 8th from a total of 500 companies.

      The Newsweek study was based on research from Corporate Knights and HIP (Human Impact + Profit) Investor Inc., including some unspecified input from “leading sustainability minds from non-governmental organizations and the academic and accounting communities.”

      Apparently the companies were all scored based on their performance against eight specific indicators, such as Energy Productivity, Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Productivity, Water Productivity, Waste Productivity and the amount of green revenue (i.e. environmental and social impacts during production, consumption and post-usage lifecycle of related products and services) etc.

      The top most green company in the world came out as Shire PLC, which is a Jersey-registered and Irish-headquartered global biopharmaceutical company. Shire PLC secured a green score of 87.70%, while BT Group scored 83.20% and Sky PLC 80.70%. Overall four UK companies made the top ten.

      Rank Green Score Company Country Industry
      1 87.70% Shire PLC Ireland Health Care
      2 83.90% Reckitt Benckiser Group PLC United Kingdom Consumer Staples
      3 83.20% BT Group PLC United Kingdom Telecommunication Services
      4 82.90% Swisscom AG Switzerland Telecommunication Services
      5 82.00% Essilor International SA France Health Care
      6 81.90% NIKE Inc United States Consumer Discretionary
      7 81.80% Unilever PLC United Kingdom Consumer Staples
      8 80.70% Sky PLC United Kingdom Consumer Discretionary
      9 79.60% Siemens AG Germany Industrials
      10 78.80% Schneider Electric SE France Industrials

      By comparison Vodafone came in at 40th position on a score of 71.80% and Liberty Global PLC (aka – Virgin Media) were found all the way down the table at no. 131 with a score of 58.50%. But past those there were no other UK telecoms firms in the top 500 table.

      Fiona Ball, Sky’s Head of Responsible Business, said:

      “This is an exciting year for us at Sky, as we celebrate 10 years of being carbon neutral and continue to make great progress against one of our key targets to halve our gross emissions relative to revenue by 2020, against a 2008 baseline. We’ve also recently signed up to RE100 and We Mean Business, and as part of the commitments we’ll be working to go 100% renewable, right across our business, something we have achieved in the UK and Ireland for many years.”
      It’s nice to know that some companies in the telecoms and media sector are putting more consideration into their environmental impact than others, especially since the science appears to suggest that we could all be facing a much more challenging future. However it will take more than this to encourage other businesses to improve.
