About our campaign

How we are powering change

SSE’s vision is to be a leading energy company in a net zero world. And as one of the UK and Ireland’s leading generators of renewable energy (SSE Renewables) and one of the largest electricity network companies in the UK (SSEN), sustainability and climate action are at the core of SSE’s business strategy.

We develop, own and operate low carbon infrastructure to support the net zero transition. This includes onshore and offshore wind, hydro power, electricity transmission and distribution grids, alongside providing energy products and services for businesses.

We are UK-listed in the FTSE100 and have committed to investing over £7.5bn in the five years to FY2025 in low-carbon energy and electricity infrastructure, including building the world’s largest offshore wind farm at Dogger Bank, off the coast of Yorkshire, Scotland’s largest offshore wind farm in Seagreen off the coast of Angus, and the UK’s most productive  onshore wind farm by output in Viking on the Shetland Islands.

SSE is committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2050 at the latest, plans to treble its renewable electricity output by 2030 and has set interim science-based targets for carbon reduction, which are aligned with the Paris Agreement and verified by the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi).

As a real Living Wage and Fair Tax Mark accredited company, we employ over 10,000 talented and skilled people across the UK and Ireland.

Our campaign is the story of a team effort, one that involves thousands of people working as one to bring low-carbon electricity to homes and businesses across the UK and Ireland, battling climate change and helping to create a brighter future for us all.
