National Grid is an international electricity and gas company and one of the largest investor-owned energy companies in the world. We play a vital role in providing energy to millions of customers across Great Britain and the Northeast US in an efficient, reliable and safe manner.
We are committed to safeguarding the environment for future generations and providing all our customers with the highest standards of service. We achieve this through ongoing investment in our systems and through our talented, diverse workforce.
National Grid is committed to working responsibly in the communities where it operates and playing its role in safeguarding the global environment for the future. These are long-term responsibilities that must be fulfilled in conjunction with our duty to create value for our shareholders. Delivering sustainable value depends on the trust and confidence of all of our stakeholders, and this can only be earned by conducting our business responsibly.
Climate change has emerged as society’s biggest ever environmental challenge and it is fundamentally changing people’s expectations of companies. To address this challenge, National Grid is adopting a low carbon business model and is actively supporting the development of low carbon energy markets. As part of our strategy, we are committed to reducing our own greenhouse gas emissions by 80% ahead of the 2050 target set by the UK government; to working with legislators and regulators to reshape energy markets; and to help and support our customers, employees and suppliers in changing their behaviours so as to be more considerate of the environment.
