Sky has published its Group-wide Impact Report looking at the bigger picture of the societal and environmental progress the organisation has made in the period January to December 2020.

The report outlines how Sky supported its customers, people, and local communities as well as the industries it operates in, through the Covid-19 crisis. It also highlights the Sky initiatives that are driving impact, such as employee volunteering programme Sky Cares, its inspirational digital skills programmes for young people, and the Sky Zero ambition to be net zero carbon by 2030. Furthermore, the report details Sky’s action on diversity and inclusion.

Dana Strong, Sky Group Chief Executive, said: “Our new Impact Report shows how Sky supported our people, customers and communities during the pandemic. Because in a year like no other, access to trustworthy news, great entertainment, and staying connected to the things and people that matter most, became even more important.

“Despite these challenging times, our teams have achieved so much. Our employees volunteered 22,000 hours through Sky Cares; more than 18,500 young people took part in our digital programme for schools, The Edit; we made Sky Arts free-to-air to everyone in the UK; and we haven’t slowed down on our ambition to be net zero carbon by 2030.

“We have also made great strides in diversity and inclusion including setting ambitious targets for representation in our business, pledging £30million to fight against racial injustice and partnering to tackle racism in sport.”
