Sky has been identified as a global leader for its actions and strategies in response to climate change and has been awarded a position on The Climate A List by CDP, the international not-for-profit that drives sustainable economies.

113 “A Listers” appear on the list, which has been produced at the request of 822 investors who represent more than a third of the world’s invested capital.

Thousands of companies submit annual climate disclosures to CDP for independent assessment against its scoring methodology. Sky is among 5% of the corporations participating in CDP’s climate change program to be awarded a position on the Climate A List, in recognition of its actions to reduce emissions and mitigate climate change in the past reporting year.

Fiona Ball, Head of Responsible Business, commented: ''At Sky, we know operating efficiently, saving energy and using natural resources wisely will help us build a better business, and contribute to a more sustainable future for everyone. We’re delighted to have our work to minimise our environmental impact, and to create better, more sustainable products has been recognised in the CDP Climate A List.''

The Climate A List is released in CDP’s annual global climate change report today, three weeks ahead of COP21, the UN climate change conference, when national leaders meet to agree a global deal to reduce carbon emissions and limit temperature warming.

CDP’s executive chairman and co-founder Paul Dickinson says: “The influence of the corporation is mighty. We congratulate the A List companies that are illuminating the path to a low carbon future through their climate leadership. The momentum of business action on climate change suggests we are reaching a tipping point, where companies are poised to achieve their full potential. They need ambitious policy at both a national and international level that will support them in this regard and will catalyze participation from industry at scale.”
