Sky Production Services achieves DPP committed to sustainability mark
DPP, the media industry’s business network, has awarded Sky Production Services (SPS) with the DPP committed to sustainability mark, scoring the company the maximum five out of five leaves on the DPP committed to sustainability survey.
This achievement allows the SPS, along with Sky and Sky Sport, to join the DPP committed to sustainability programme, which measures, promotes, and celebrates good practice in environmental sustainability across the media industry.
The application was assessed based on policies and standards, energy, waste, and emissions and has shown a commitment to the environment and a mature, thorough, and genuine approach to reducing adverse environmental impact across all business areas.
Aligned with Sky’s ambition to be net-zero carbon by 2030, a series of operational improvements, including the introduction of remote productions and moving all UK and Irish OB generators to biofuel, Sky Sports and SPS have reduced its combined impact on the environment. These improvements led to the high score of five out of five leaves on the DPP survey, with the average participating company receiving a score of two out of five leaves.
Inga Ruehl, executive director of production services and operations, Sky Sports, commented: “At Sky Sports and SPS, we understand our responsibility to do the right thing and that means we must do all we can to eliminate or reduce the impact of our operations on our natural environment. It’s fantastic to receive validation of the team’s hard work by being awarded the DPP Committed to Sustainability mark accreditation with five leaves, and it highlights the progress we’re making to transform our business on the way to achieving net zero carbon by 2030.”
