Our Pledge

Reducing carbon emissions is critical. As a leading business within the energy sector, we understand just how important Net Zero is.

Northern Gas and Power are firmly behind the UK government’s Net Zero ambitions. Despite operating in five countries across three continents, we limit our business travel, encouraging telephone, digital and video conferencing instead. We’ve introduced a staff Electric Vehicle scheme. We minimise printing on site, and ensure the mandatory shutdown of our machines at night. We’ve implemented the latest light-sensor technologies which time our lighting to ensure optimisation. Our in-house experts provide us with extensive carbon assessments and carbon footprinting. Our new £2m+ HQ, RIGA, was designed with sustainability at its very core. The complex is also powered by Gateshead MBC’s Combined Heat and Power centre – a highly efficient heating source. The building has an EPC rating of ‘A’. While we are also planting trees in some Northumberland woodland to help mitigate carbon emissions and create a pleasant space that people can visit and cherish.

We look forward to helping businesses around the globe realise their ambitions for a Net Zero business future.


Our customers have told us they want to gain greater awareness and control of their energy. They want to reduce consumption to protect their bottom line, but also the planet.
