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, setting out our approach in detail. The Statement covers:

  • leadership and the SSE team;
  • the work of the Board;
  • Board effectiveness;
  • accountability including risk management and internal control;
  • relations with shareholders and stakeholders; and
  • the work each of the the five Board Committees - Audit, Nomination, Remuneration, Energy Markets Risk and Safety, Health and Environment.
