Welcome to the O4B Trans-Pennine Initiative

SSE and our stakeholders recognise we have a role to play in contributing to the economic well being and sustainable development of the communities we operate in.

O4B as a concept is about promoting local procurement; buying things and services from companies in the areas we operate in. In a practical sense it’s a web portal where SSE and our principal contractors will promote business opportunities in the region and local suppliers can register on the portal and have visibility / respond to these opportunities for free.

Quite simply, SSE and our stakeholders want to be the best in the North of England at engaging with the local communities and be the most ‘Open for Business’ companies in the region.
