Serving all of our communities, including our armed forces

working for us

This Saturday marks Armed Forces Day – an opportunity for the country to recognise the hard work and sacrifice that our armed forces make. Here at Cadent, we are committed to serving all of our communities, and this includes our veterans and reservists. Furthermore, we recognise that our company as a whole represents those communities that we serve, and I know we have a number of fantastic veterans and reservists doing great work all across Cadent. That is why I am delighted to say that we have officially signed the Armed Forces Covenant.

The Covenant officially acknowledges the recognition that we give as a company to the value that serving personnel, both regular and reservists, veterans and military families contribute to our business and to our country. Signing the Covenant underlines our commitment to those in our workforce who have a link to the armed forces. Cadent are proud to be an ‘armed-forces friendly employer’.

Cadent is the UK’s largest gas distribution network with a 200-year legacy.  We are in a unique position to build on strong foundations whilst encouraging the curiosity to think differently and the courage to embrace change.  Day to day we continue to operate, maintain and innovate the UK’s largest gas network, transporting gas safely and protecting people in an emergency.   Our skilled engineers and specialists remain committed to the communities we serve, working day and night to ensure gas reaches 11 million homes from Cumbria to North London and the Welsh Borders to East Anglia, to keep your energy flowing. 

Future of Gas: Here at Cadent we support the Government’s plans to reach Net Zero by 2050. That means we’re backing the introduction of hydrogen as a low carbon alternative to natural gas for the future. We know people love the controllability of gas and, with our network already in place, it makes sense to switch to the lower carbon alternative offered by hydrogen, which we believe can keep homes and businesses warm for generations to come.
