We’re providing the energy needed today, while building a better world of energy for tomorrow. #CleanAirDay
As one of the UK and Ireland’s biggest power generators and distributors we’re playing a leading role in decarbonisation and the quest for #netzero
Today we launched our Opportunity Action Plan in partnership with the @TheSMPledge. It showcases and highlights the actions that can support fairness as we transition to a #netzero economy.
We’ve called for a ban on the sale of petrol and diesel vehicles by 2030 and are electrifying our own 3,500 strong transport fleet as part of the @EV100 initiative #CleanAirDay
Let’s charge up the green recovery by deploying the world’s most extensive EV charging infrastructure by 2025, ban petrol and diesel vehicles by 2030 and decarbonise corporate fleets by 2030: https://www.sse.com/news-and-views/2020/05/our-greenprint-for-a-cleaner-more-resilient-economic-recovery/

👇👇This is why we committed to the living wage in 2013 both for our employees and in our supply chain. #livingwage #fairpay #decentwork #socialmobility
Secure work and decent pay mean workers worry less. It gives them stability, promotes a sense of belonging and improves well-being. Paying a real Living Wage makes a huge difference to the lives of workers and their families.
