First construction drone company achieves carbon neutral status


First construction drone company achieves carbon neutral status. Sky Revolutions, has created carbon neutral drones and achieved carbon neutral status by offsetting its 2021 carbon emissions in line with the UN’s Framework Convention on Climate Change.

In partnership with Carbon Neutral Britain, Sky Revolutions conducted a comprehensive review of its business operations before buying the verified credits. The credits will support three upcoming projects in 2022, namely:


  • the Burgos Wind Farm project in the Philippines
  • the Rice Husk Power Project in Cambodia
  • and a hydroelectric power project in the Amazon


The company has also pioneered carbon neutral drones.


‘Becoming carbon neutral was important not just to our business, but to our whole team’


Director of Sky Revolutions Ben Gorham has commented:


“Becoming carbon neutral was important not just to our business, but to our whole team. We’d discussed it for some time and agreed to prioritise the work during 2021.


“The process helped us kick-start a range of initiatives including equipment recycling, tree-planting for new employees and the introduction of a new supply chain policy that encourages our partners and suppliers to provide sustainable services.”


The company provides a low or no-carbon technology service – in short, carbon neutral drones. For example, their time-lapse cameras – present on many of UK’s largest developments – are energy self-sufficient, powered by state-of-the-art solar panel systems, and their drone fleet removes the need for helicopter flight on a range of aerial inspections.


Sky Revolutions is using speedy inspection and monitoring servicing to aid wind farms and solar farms run efficiently. This is helping suppliers keep their costs down and ultimately making green energy considerably more accessible.


Sky Revolutions does not want to limit itself by making this a self-contained project – instead the company wants to play a key role in shaping the way the business develops. Carbon neutral drones are the future, and Sky Revolutions knows that.


Ben Gorham added: “We’ll be repeating the review in 2022 and are now focussed on becoming carbon negative by 2024.


“Achieving carbon neutral status was a great milestone, but it’s really just the first step in becoming more aware of our impact on the broader environment.”
