Our first priority is to safely deliver a robust, efficient and reliable network to our customers in the north of Scotland. In delivering this essential service, we also have a responsibility to our customers, employees, communities and shareholders to ensure this need is met in the most responsible way possible.

Following internal and external feedback, we have identified five sustainability focus areas in which we hope to deliver our sustainability ambitions:

  • Connecting for society – promoting affordability for our customers.
  • Supporting thriving communities – maximising the local benefit of our developments.
  • Growing careers – investing in and developing our people.
  • Promoting the natural environment – protecting and promoting the natural environment.
  • Mitigating climate change – tackling our own carbon emissions.


The consultation report, Delivering a smart, sustainable energy future, provides a first view of our sustainability strategy and these ambitions. Ahead of finalising our Strategy, we are seeking all views and comments to inform our thoughts and direction.

There are questions throughout the document where we are asking for your input on whether we have identified the right areas to target, whether the information and views we have received so far reflect your understanding; and whether the targets and measurement approaches that we are proposing are suitably ambitious and rigorous.
