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 will invest £18bn out to 2026/27 (on average £10m a day) in low-carbon energy and electricity infrastructure in our Net Zero Acceleration Programme.
SSE has a target of achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions across its scope 1 and scope 2 emissions by 2040 (subject to security of supply requirements) and for remaining scope 3 emissions by 2050.
We also plans to increase our renewable energy output fivefold by 2031 and have set interim science-based targets for carbon reduction, which are aligned with the Paris Agreement and verified by the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi).
We are a real Living Wage and Living Hours accredited employer and a Fair Tax Mark accredited company, and we employ over 12,000 talented and skilled people across to UK and Ireland.
Our campaign is the story of a team effort, one that involves thousands of people working as one to deliver the actions needed today to bring low-carbon electricity to homes and businesses across the UK and Ireland.
