Working towards a net-zero future
Society’s expectations of energy companies have increased significantly and it is now more important than ever that we work towards a net-zero future.
As the largest Gas Distribution company in the UK, we provide an essential service that keeps the energy flowing to over 11m homes, offices and businesses. We recognise that Cadent has a significant part to play in providing a cleaner, greener, responsible and sustainable future.
We are committed to responding to a changing world and the new challenges and trends that may affect our ability to meet our business objectives, and our commitment to doing business responsibly, because we know this is the right thing to do and what our customers want us to do.
Our sustainability report
In order to track this journey and ensure that we are delivering on these commitments, we have produced our first sustainability report, which provides an update on our efforts and demonstrates our commitment to this goal.
We have focussed on 5 areas over the past 12 months which we have reported on, which are:
· climate change;
• resource scarcity;
• social inequality in the communities in which we operate; and
• health and safety challenges.
Whilst we are proud of the work we have accomplished, we recognise there is more to do, and our employees are excited to take on this challenge, to ensure that the future we’re working towards is a net-zero one.
