We are clear that sustainability must be at the heart of any energy company’s long-term strategy.  We want to lead the way in tackling the biggest environmental and social issues acing our industry and we’ve clearly defined our agenda through Our Sustainability Commitments.

Our Sustainability Commitments, launched in Parliament in 2010, set our long term sustainability agenda. They set out how we’ll reduce carbon and waste, deliver low-carbon nuclear responsibly, help customers, build a world class culture and serve our communities.

We were thrilled to have our efforts rewarded in the Business in the Community (BITC) Corporate Responsibility Index wherewe were awarded ‘Platinum Big Tick’ status for our approach to sustainability.

With an overall score of 95%, we were also rated best in our sector. This is a great endorsement of our long-term approach to being a responsible and sustainable business and it recognises a huge amount of hard work by our people right across our company and in the community.

We were also further awarded six ‘Big Ticks’ in the BITC Responsible Business Awards. Simon Round, a Training Team Manager in our ESCS business unit, won a BITC Local and Regional Impact Award in the Employee Volunteer of the Year category.
