How a more positive approach helps businesses do better
In recent years, we’ve been making steady progress towards a sustainable future for our business. We’ve reduced our energy spend, cut our carbon footprint and invested heavily in renewable energy generation.
At the same time, we’ve looked closely at the pressures on companies of all sizes both to meet the demands of their own customers and to satisfy their aspirations as forward thinking companies. That’s allowed us to develop practical solutions that can help your business on its journey towards a sustainable future.

Renewable energy for small to medium sized businesses.
Environmental issues are becoming increasingly important in every walk of life. There’s a growing concern about the impact that greenhouse gases have on the environment and carbon reduction is a serious concern for all businesses.
That’s why companies of all sizes are increasingly choosing energy suppliers that can provide renewable energy supply contracts which can help you to radically cut your carbon emissions, reducing your environmental impact and helping on your own journey towards sustainability.
SSE has the broadest portfolio of renewable energy generating assets in the UK and Ireland and through SSE Green, we can provide electricity that’s backed by Ofgem’s Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin scheme which could help your company to report zero carbon emissions for the electricity you purchase.*
*Where the consumption used is matched with an equivalent volume of renewable electricity generated from large-scale wind and hydro sources and exported onto the National Grid.
Energy efficiency for small to medium sized businesses.
While every business wants to manage its energy costs, very few realise the savings that can be made by implementing tried and tested energy efficiency measures.
As a responsible energy provider, we want our customers to use as little energy as possible. We’re committed to providing reliable, sustainable energy solutions and that includes offering a range of options to help you reduce the amount of energy your business uses.
From information and guidance on simple energy-saving measures to Clarity, our online energy management tool that allows you to analyse smart meter data, we’ll help you find ways to cut your energy usage and reduce your costs.
Going green makes good business sense in many different ways and you can turn your decision to choose renewable energy into a competitive advantage for your business.
If for example, you have to tender for contracts, it’s often essential to have a strong environmental policy as part of your bid for the contract. So, if you can demonstrate your green credentials, you could have a better chance of winning the business.
Choosing green energy doesn’t just show that you take your supply chain and procurement seriously, it’s also increasingly important to consumers. When you buy SSE Green, you are able to prove to your customers that you have a clear commitment to social and environmental issues with the certification and accreditation logos that can be prominently displayed in your marketing materials.
