At SSE we never lose sight of our core purpose: to supply the energy people need in a reliable and sustainable way.
We understand that energy is something that people need to live, it is not a luxury, and energy companies like SSE carry certain responsibilities. Central to these is a responsibility to ensure that the energy we supply our customers is as affordable.
In recent years there has been a lot of focus on making energy greener, sometimes regardless of the costs to consumers. Now, I believe our customers want affordable energy first and we have a responsibility to deliver that. That is not to say that SSE is turning its back on green energy, after all we are the biggest generator of electricity from renewable sources, but the balance has shifted towards customers.
I am exceptionally proud of the SSE contribution to the UK, our investment in the infrastructure the country needs, our award winning customer service and the efforts our staff make every day to do more for our customers.
Energy is in the spotlight like never before and it is undeniably true that the industry needs to make changes. SSE will be at the forefront of those changes, we are up for reform and I will ensure that we never lose sight of our core purpose.
