Sky Sports will highlight the effects of climate change at some of the UK’s premier sporting events this summer, ahead of the UK to host the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow in November.

As part of this, Sky Sports viewers will see how Sky, in partnership with umbrella organizations, is helping the sport run and broadcast sustainable events at some of the summer’s biggest sporting events such as The Open and British Grand Prix.

On Wednesday, Sky Sports News will kick off the summer of sustainability with a day of live coverage, telling stories of positive climate action among athletes, clubs and organizations in the UK.

Sky Sports News will aim to highlight situations where climate change has affected sports venues and people, to show how serious the situation is and to encourage its audience to take their own action to protect the climate.

Presenter David Garrido will lead coverage for Sky Sports News and he and our reporters will be broadcast from Tottenham – the most sustainable Premier League club – McLaren, Royal St. George’s, The Oval, Tokyo with the upcoming Olympics, Leeds Rhinos, Forest Green Rovers and many more, with each sport and club telling its own sustainable story.

A number of editorial features on climate change will be broadcast during the Open and British Grand Prix, including a 30-minute golf documentary and a lifestyle article starring Nico Rosberg.

Later this summer, Sky Sports Cricket will show a short documentary, Cricket’s Climate Crisis, and The Lions and The Hundred will also receive Albert Certification as well as showcase some of the climate initiatives in these sports and their coverage.
