As the transmission network operator in the north of Scotland, SHE Transmission is a company that has to be built to last. Operating and investing in a sustainable way is crucial to both meeting regulatory obligations and to long-term commercial success.

Sustainability is a core value to SHE Transmission, ensuring “actions and decisions are ethical, responsible and balanced, helping to achieve environmental, social and economic well-being for current and future generations”. The development of the Sustainable Commercial Model (SCM) by SHE Transmission advances a new, financially driven, process to assess wider economic, social and environmental impacts of capital investment. The model ensures each impact area is considered equally; a poor understanding of one increases risk and possibility of failure in the long-term for any company that doesn’t incorporate them into future financial decisions.
