Our Suppliers

Our purpose is to provide energy needed today, while building a better world of energy for tomorrow. We welcome suppliers who support our vision of being a leading energy company in a net zero world.

With safety, sustainability and responsibility at the heart of all we do, we're keen to establish strong relationships with our suppliers because we know how critical they are to our business.

Below you’ll find information on our approach to procurement, including an update on our new Sourcing-to-Contract system.


Our Sustainable Procurement Code outlines the expectations and requirements on SSE’s suppliers and contractors, and their supply chains.

To ensure that SSE’s business is conducted ethically, sustainably and within the law, SSE expects its suppliers to meet the principles outlined in the Code and Guidance. This means as a minimum complying with local laws and regulations and respecting internationally recognised human and labour rights, however the values of fairness and respect are equally important to SSE.

Our Sustainable Procurement Plan outlines the objectives, goals, and approaches of the SSE group, detailing the proactive measures taken by each SSE business unit to embed sustainability within our procurement operations and supply chain practices.

This document serves as a valuable resource for our suppliers, providing insight into our overarching ambitions. By acquainting yourselves with our sustainability initiatives, you can better align your own sustainable objectives with ours, fostering a collaborative partnership geared towards mutual success and impactful outcomes.
