A plan for our shared future

We are proud to deliver an essential public service and we recognise this comes with important responsibilities – to our customers, our communities and the environment as we drive for net-zero by 2045.

RIIO-GD2 is the agreement we’ll make with Ofgem about what we’ll deliver for customers from 2021 until 2026.

We’ve listened extensively to our customers and stakeholders to create our plan; with 23,000 high quality, individual engagements and more than one million people reached online.

Our plan is rigorous, ambitious and deeply aligned to customer and stakeholder needs. We understand their priorities and preferences and we are confident we will be delivering extra value for our customers

View our Business Plan

Customers told us they have seven priorities and our RIIO-GD2 plan is built on these priorities, brought to life in three strong customer commitments that run throughout our plan and underpin all our proposals.

We will make a positive impact on society,
by supporting vulnerable communities and providing excellent service.
We will deliver a safe and efficient service
by acting safely, keeping the gas flowing and keeping costs down.
We will build a shared net-zero future
by accelerating decarbonised energy solutions and minimising our environmental impact.
