At National Grid we’re committed to being a responsible business in everything we do. It’s enshrined in our purpose – to Bring Energy to Life.
We do this through the delivery of the electricity and gas that powers our customers and communities. And we will always do so reliably, safely, and in a fair and affordable way for all.
Right now, we are putting our values into action with our response to the coronavirus pandemic, caring for our people and the communities we serve.
At the same time, we are moving forward with our broader programmes for responsible business. Whether it's ensuring the youth of today become the problem solvers of tomorrow, or tackling climate change by reducing our own emissions, and helping our customers use energy more efficiently. Responsible business is how we do business.
