Centrica Chief Executive Sam Laidlaw and Group Finance Director Nick Luff offered their thoughts for 2013 in pieces published by a number of UK newspapers on New Year’s Day.
In The Independent, Sam Laidlaw highlighted the “major contribution” Centrica makes through its investments, the jobs it creates and the taxes it pays. He said that the business now had an “opportunity to build on that to deliver the energy market of the future”.
However, citing the pressure on household and business budgets, he said more needed to be done to make “tariffs clearer and simpler and to help customers understand what makes up their energy bills”.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Nick Luff said that, alongside the implementation of new energy policies, stability was also required in the tax system, as both were “crucial to unlocking much-needed investment” in the industry.
