SSE is one of the UK and Ireland’s largest energy companies and, as the leading renewable energy provider across these countries, it is committed to making a wider social impact throughout the energy transformation and beyond. OUR VALUES FOR A BETTERWORLD OF ENERGY

Our people We know that the way we do things has an impact on people, whether its energy customers, those who work for us or those who live in the communities that we operate in. In recognition that SSE has a deeply interconnected relationship with the society it relies on to operate and make a profit, we aim to conduct our business in a way that contributes positively and shares value. This means creating a fair and inclusive place to work and giving back to our local communities. Fairness at work SSE has been a proud real Living Wage accredited employer since 2013, meaning our employees, and those working regularly on our behalf, earn an hourly rate that exceeds the national living wage. SSE has been rolling out the real Living Wage across its supply chain since 2014 through the inclusion of a Living Wage Clause in all relevant contracts. In 2017, we extended the clause to go beyond the requirements of the Living Wage Foundation. SSE has committed to championing the real Living Wage through its 2030 Goals. SSE was also the first FTSE 100 company to be awarded the Fair Tax mark and has maintained this for seven consecutive years. SSE also supports the Fair Tax Foundation’s efforts to establish a voluntary framework for good multinational businesses to demonstrate that they play fair with tax, paying the right amount, in the right place and at the right time.

SSE has a clear vision, purpose and strategy focused on Net Zero.


Our purpose To provide energy needed today while building a better world of energy for tomorrow. Our vision To be a leading energy company in a net-zero world. Our strategy To create value for shareholders and society in a sustainable way through successful development, efficient operation and responsible ownership of energy infrastructure and businesses.
