The energy services we provide are essential to the communities we operate in, however we are mindful that there is an added responsibility for us to conduct ourselves in a way that enhances value to the societies we are part of. As a responsibly-minded company, Sustainability is embedded throughout all of SSE's different business operations, along with our other core values of Safety, Service, Teamwork, Efficiency and Excellence.

SSE is a FTSE 35 company, employing over 20,000 people across the UK and Ireland.  We are proud to be a Living Wage accredited employer, and to be the only FTSE100 company to have retained the Fair Tax Mark since 2014.
