When we say we're an energy company that cares about making a difference, we really mean it.
By creating jobs, paying a fair wage, investing in infrastructure and paying our taxes we make a difference every day.
We're proud to have been accredited with the Fair Tax Mark. Our customers can now be assured that SSE is paying its fair share of tax and being open about how it does that. It's all part of our commitment to making a real difference every day.
We employ over 19,000 people and support over 100,000 jobs in the UK.And we're training 500 young people, spending an average of £80,000 per person to develop their talent. It's an investment in their future - and ours.
All our staff are guaranteed the Living Wage, ensuring that they can cover the basic living costs such as homes, bills, food and work travel. That makes us one of the largest employers to pay the Living Wage1.And we're working with our suppliers to see that their staff get the same fair treatment. That's why every new eligible service or works contract we've signed since April 2014 includes an obligation for our suppliers to pay the Living Wage.
Our annual contribution to the UK economy was recently estimate as £9 billion2 - equivalent in value to the 2012 London Olympics.In fact, we've invested over £1 billion in UK infrastructure in the past year alone and paid £1 billion in taxes since 2011.
