Sky UK has more than quadruple its electric vehicle (EV) fleet year-on-year, as the business looks to become net-zero emissions by 2030, two decades ahead of the government’s target. 
 
Sky is Europe’s leading media and entertainment company, which is spread across six countries and connects 24 million customers through its broadband, mobile and TV packages.
 
In 2020, Sky UK introduced 29 pure EVs, and has already added a further 60 this year, with an additional 72 due for delivery in the coming months in line with its zero-emissions strategy. 
 
The Kia e-Niro and the Renault Kangoo Z.E make up 60% of the business’s EV fleet and will be used by colleagues across the business, including the Sky News team when filming on location, sales teams, and company managers. 
 
To support the sustainable switch, it’s leasing provider has developed a Whole Life Cost policy for Sky UK’s EV fleet, including a full service and maintenance package which will help reduce running costs and minimise vehicle downtime. 
 
Oliver Wanklyn, Senior Fleet Operations Manager at the Sky UK, said: “As we look towards the future, we wanted to work with our leasing provider to speed up our transition to a net-zero fleet.
 
“Our long-standing partnership of nine years meant they really understood our ambitions and have helped us to start achieving them while keeping our business on the road.
 
“The team worked with us to develop a sustainable fleet solution that will not only save us money but ensure our fleet is heading in the right direction and is in line with our broader sustainability strategy of being a zero-emission fleet by 2030.”
 
Sky UK is headquartered in Isleworth, Brentford, and has worked with the same leasing provider 2012. It has a fleet of more than 4,000 vehicles, which is made up of over 600 company cars and 3,500 LCVs.
