Amber McEwen, Head of Marketing at SSE Business Energy, talks about X Energy 2017.
Today, I’m at the X-Energy event in London meeting with energy and sustainability professionals from across the UK discussing the intersection of energy and technology.
Amber McEwen, Head of Marketing at SSE Business Energy, talks about how we are working with the Fair Tax Mark and Living Wage foundations to bring the Better Business programme to a wider audience:
A few years ago, I was talking to a marketing agency about the SSE Business Energy brand and what direction we should be taking. They said something that I completely disagreed with then, and still do now; that we should steer clear from sustainability as it was ‘old news’.
Amber McEwen, Head of Marketing at SSE Business Energy talks about the Better Business programme, and the benefits it can bring businesses:
One of the things that drew me to work for SSE Business Energy a few years ago was the fact that SSE prides itself on being a responsible company, and works hard to do the right thing. SSE has been Fair Tax accredited for three consecutive years and has been a Living Wage accredited employer in the UK since 2013.
SSE, one of the UK’s leading energy companies, has already demonstrated that it puts being open and honest about tax as a top priority, at a time when the tax credentials of big businesses are being increasingly scrutinised.
Not only are SSE committed to demonstrating their fair tax credentials, they are keen that sustainability policies span the full range of the businesses activities, primarily but not limited to from investing in renewable technologies and reducing carbon emissions, to being a Living Wage employer, across the supply chain.
