SSE has set stretching new targets for 2030 in a bid to tackle climate change and support global goals for sustainable development.
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 has reaffirmed its commitment to tackling climate change by issuing the biggest ever green bond by a UK company.
The €600m bond is the first of its kind issued by a UK headquartered energy company and supports not only the development of an active UK market in environmentally-friendly capital market products but, perhaps most importantly shows a strong commitment towards the environment and future generations.
