That’s half of the UK, we keep safe and warm. 24/7. 365 days a year. And have done for the past 200 years.

Culture and values

Making things Easier, Fairer and Greener

We play an essential role in keeping customers safe, warm and connected to their gas supplies. As part of our commitments to the communities we serve, we work with our partners in the utilities sector and beyond to share ideas and improve together. We are committed to working with experts in our sector and beyond to share ideas, learn, and improve. Our collaborative approach is key to delivering the service customers expect today and tomorrow.

Our purpose is to keep people warm while protecting the planet by making things ‘easier, fairer and greener’ for those living and working in our networks. By providing Easier Warmth, we can ensure everyone has access to secure and affordable heating now and in the future. Creating Fairer Opportunities allows us to boost social mobility and ensure we are creating an inclusive culture with a diverse workforce within our own business, supply chain and the communities we serve. Our commitment to developing a Greener Society enables us to lead the way in the decarbonisation of the energy industry, working towards a
thriving, net zero future.

Shaping a more sustainable future

Protecting the environment and transforming our energy system is hugely important for us and the communities we serve – now and for the future.

To ensure that we are at the forefront of creating energy solutions for the future, we work closely with government on policy, reaching out to new audiences, experimenting in our communication methods and innovating with the support of partners and our supply chain to reduce our carbon footprint.

Supporting our customers by Keeping people safe, warm and independent

Anyone can be vulnerable if their circumstances change and rather than using labels, we prefer to focus on individual needs and what we can do to ensure customers stay safe, warm, connected and independent in their homes.

Our customer vulnerability strategy forms the backbone of our approach and focuses on our stakeholders’ top priorities: increasing PSR registrations, raising awareness of carbon monoxide (CO), tackling fuel poverty and providing services for all.
