SSE scoops FTSE 350 reporting award

SSE is delighted to have won the top award for reporting in the FTSE 350 in this year's PwC Building Public Trust Awards.

PwC describes the award as a celebration of those companies that provide a clear, consistent, high quality and integrated strategic narrative across the spectrum of their reporting.

Judges looked at the SSE Annual Report 2019, the SSE Sustainability Report 2019, Preliminary Full-year Results and other investor material on the Reports and Results centre on sse.com to assess transparency in the following areas: strategic reporting, corporate governance, executive remuneration, tax, workforce fairness, and purpose and impact.

Nominations are not made for the Building Public Trust Awards; instead, all companies in the FTSE 350 are automatically evaluated as part of the judging process.

Gregor Alexander, SSE Finance Director, said: "At SSE we believe we have a responsibility to be open and honest about the impact we have on the world around us as we strive to create value for shareholders and society more widely.

"I am delighted that the considerable effort that we put into conveying our purpose, and disclosing its societal implications, has been recognised by this award. This is testament to the focus on teamwork that SSE brings to bear on everything from corporate governance to major project delivery."
