Winner of large business category, Finance for the Future Awards 2015

As sponsors of the 2015 awards, we were delighted to extend our congratulations to SSE plc as the winner of the large business award. 

In this category, organisations were asked to demonstrate a positive long-term environmental, social or economic impact, that is core to the activities of the business, and that could not have been achieved without the involvement of the company’s finance team.
