The national gas distribution network isn't just a commercial resource, it’s a national asset that we safeguard for future generations. And, as we own four of the eight regional gas distribution networks in the UK, our duty is to look after and maintain them, keeping the energy constantly flowing through 130,000km of pipeline to around 11 million customers every single day.
These are big numbers. And this is a huge responsibility. Added to which, we also manage the national gas emergency number. So, every single person at Cadent should feel really proud of the fact that they’re helping to smoothly and safely power everyday life in Britain.
They should feel proud to play their part in sourcing secure, affordable and sustainable gas for the future too, as we look ahead to RIIO-2. We’re improving our service to our customers by delivering the right solutions at the right cost, and working to achieve frontier performance by developing a high-performing culture across the business. Yes, targets will be stretching. But, we’re confident that a good plan well-executed will get us to where we need to be.
