Governance and the role of the Board

At SSE we are committed to the highest standards of corporate governance. We see this as essential to fulfilling our core purpose of providing the energy people need in a reliable and sustainable way.

We believe effective corporate governance is the best way to ensure SSE is a consistently successful, well-run and responsible business.

In line with that belief and our responsibility to our customers and shareholders, every year we publish our Corporate Governance Statement (below), setting out our approach in detail. The Statement covers:

  • the SSE team;
  • risk management and internal control;
  • how the Board works; and
  • the work each of the four Board Committees - Audit, Nomination, Safety, Health and Environment and Remuneration.
