If you want to know what jobs will be like in the future green economy, take a look at what Sky does today. The company has been on a strategic course to reduce its impact on people and planet for over 15 years. It was the first media company in the world to go carbon neutral in 2006 and has committed to be net zero carbon by 2030.
Sky’s commitment to sustainability and social good runs through every aspect of the company’s operations; from television production to product development, human resources to facilities management. It’s also using its platform and award-winning content to mobilise millions around the world to join its net zero journey.
Fiona Ball, Group Director, Bigger Picture and Sustainability, at Sky explains: “At Sky, sustainability isn’t just a buzzword or kept in a silo. It’s embedded in everything we do. Achieving a net zero target is the responsibility of everyone within the business and wider value chain.”
To flourish in the green economy, more companies will no doubt follow Sky’s lead. And that means sustainability will become as much a core skill required of everyone in the workplace as perhaps collaboration and communication are today.
