Corporate political engagement

We’re committed to maintaining a high standard of corporate political engagement worldwide. We do this by assessing and making our policies, procedures and practice visible.

We have clear guiding principles for our lobbying and engagement with our elected leaders, an integrated management approach with Board accountability and oversight. We can demonstrate that we manage activities on a Group-wide basis and have management approval, monitoring and compliance processes in place to support this. 

National Grid is a member of various trade associations across the UK, US and EU, where we strive to share our knowledge, expertise, best practices and insights to inform the work of respective bodies.

As part of our commitment to transparency, we have conducted a review of relevant organisations and assessed their alignment with climate related policy positions and commitments. Full details on our findings, as well as our process for managing partial alignment moving forward, are included in the document below:
