Documents & Policies
Northern Gas Networks owns and maintains the network of pipes that carry the gas you buy from your supplier into your home and businesses. We are a Gas Distribution Network (GDN) in the North of England- responsible for maintaining a network of 37,000km of pipe that safely delivers energy to 2.7 million homes and businesses across the North East, northern Cumbria and much of Yorkshire. Providing energy to keep our customers warm in a safe and reliable way day in, day out – whilst striving to be a force for good in our communities.
Sustainability & Supply Chain
The NGN People and Planet strategy outlines our long-term sustainability goals and aims to bring our people and suppliers along with us on the journey. We currently distribute a mixture of natural gas and biomethane, but we’ve got big plans to deliver greener, low carbon gas in the future and for generations to come.
Our strategy is aligned to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and includes short term (2026), medium term (2030) and longer term (beyond 2030) targets.
We work closely with around 2,000 suppliers and in 2022 we launched a Supplier Code of Conduct to embed sustainability within our supply chain. Our aim is to have 80% of our supply chain (by value) signed up by 2026.
Why a Partner?
Partnering with Supply Chain Sustainability School will enable our supply chain and colleagues to access information and resources that help them to understand their impact on the environment and communities.
