Sky announced a media and principal partnership with COP26 in time for a climate change summit taking place in Glasgow this November. “This is an exciting year as we prepare for COP26 in Glasgow,” COP26 President Alok Sharma said. “Businesses have a key part to play in the summit and in building back greener, so I am delighted to welcome Sky as a Principal Partner for COP26. Their Sky Zero campaign shows how ambitious they are to take meaningful action for the future of our planet and I look forward to working together in the run-up to COP26.” 

As a Principal Partner, Sky will support the execution of the summit's creation, working alongside the UK Government who holds the COP26 Presidency. “This year will require us all to focus and adapt as we accelerate our efforts to tackle the climate crisis,” Jeremy Darroch, Executive Chairman, Sky, said.

The company published a series of new environmental commitments for its TV productions, which will help it towards its business goal of becoming net-zero carbon by 2030. “At Sky, we believe that our voice and reach can play a vital role in empowering our customers, partners and industry peers to build a better world because it’s the actions of the business, the government, and individuals, that will define our generation,” Darroch said. 

The new regulations require all Sky originals to adhere to the Sustainable Production Principles and Planet Test. In addition, all Sky Sports host broadcasts must be albert certified on sustainable productions. “I hope Sky’s new Planet Test and Sustainable Production Principles will spur others to make the transition to net-zero with us,” Darroch said.
