Jeremy Darroch became Executive Chairman of Sky in 2021. In 2004 he joined Sky plc as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and became Group CEO in 2007. As Group CEO, he oversaw a huge expansion of the business which now employs over 26,000 people in the UK. Under its long-time marketing tagline ‘Believe in Better’, Sky has been a leader in corporate social responsibility, particularly around climate change. Jeremy has helped drive that step change through Sky’s ‘Bigger Picture’ initiatives including Sky Rainforest Rescue, Sky Ocean Rescue and Sky Zero. As the first media company committed to go Net Zero by 2030, it is fitting that Sky has recently been announced as Principal Partner and Media Partner for COP26.
Jeremy will be in conversation with James Harding, Tortoise co-founder, discussing the responsibility of corporate citizens to work with business and civil society to accelerate Net Zero.
