Sustainability & Supply Chain

The Northern Powergrid Sustainability Strategy details our plans to combat climate change by transforming our network to enable decarbonisation and the transition to net zero in the regions we serve. It also outlines our ambitions to reduce environmental impact across our own operations, expand our role as a positive force for good for employees and local communities, and consistently deliver value to our customers.

Our sustainability strategy reveals a long-term vision for our business, with delivery focused on three pillars:

Environmental: Protecting our environment for the benefit of future generations, driving and facilitating decarbonisation and adapting to climate change.

Social: To be force for good for our colleagues and communities; developing, supporting, and protecting them.

Economic: Creating a long-term value through sustainable growth and keeping bills affordable for our customers.

In 2023 we launched our Responsible Procurement Charter to embed sustainability within our supply chain.
