See how we deliver long-term value to our customers and shareholders

At Centrica, we understand
that energy is essential
for all of us, both now and
for the future.

That's why we are active in each stage of the energy lifecycle: from sourcing and generating to processing and storing; from trading and supplying to servicing and, crucially, to saving energy.

We want current and future generations to be able to rely on secure energy supplies. So, we are making vital investments across the whole energy spectrum – in nuclear and gas-fired power stations, wind farms, liquefied natural gas and in global exploration for new sources of gas.

At the same time, because we know we must reduce our dependence on carbon, we are working hard to supply cleaner energy. We are also investing in advanced technology to deliver products and services to help customers use energy more efficiently, for today and tomorrow.

Our Vision

Our vision is to be the leading integrated energy company in our chosen markets... to deliver long-term value to our customers and shareholders
