SSE's vision is to be a leading energy company in a net zero world.
To achieve this, our strategy is to create value for shareholders and society from developing, building, operating and investing in the electricity infrastructure and businesses needed in the transition to net zero. We have an ambitious £12.5bn capital investment plan to accelerate progress towards net zero over the five years up to 2026, the majority of which will go to low-carbon infrastructure. Sustainability is one of SSE’s core values, defined as ‘we do things responsibly to add long-term value’. We’re committed to being operationally net zero by 2050 and have set four 2030 business goals aligned with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
