Our vision describes what we want to achieve in the long term, while our values shape our spirit, attitude and what guides us.
At National Grid, our vision is to be at the heart of a clean, fair and affordable energy future.
We have a responsibility to demonstrate our contribution to society, whether that’s helping the young people of today to become the energy problem-solvers of tomorrow, supporting our customers to use energy more efficiently or tackling climate change by targeting net zero for our own emissions by 2050.
Creating a clean, fair and affordable energy future is what society demands and what we demand of ourselves. It’s the right thing to do for our people and business, our customers and the future of the planet. What could be more important?
Clean, because we have a critical role to play in tackling climate change, leading the way to net zero
Fair, because we want to enable the energy transition for all, making sure that no one gets left behind
Affordable, because everyone should be able to pay for all their essential energy needs
If our vision sets out ‘what’ we want to achieve, our values are the ‘how’. They shape our spirit, attitude and what guides us.
Our values underpin everything we do. They inform our decisions, how we show up and the way we treat each other. They shape our company and how our customers and communities experience us. For when we live our values, we show National Grid at its very best.
