Cadent owns, operates and maintains the largest natural gas distribution network in the United Kingdom, transporting gas to 11 million homes and businesses across North West, West Midlands, East Midlands, South Yorkshire, East of England and North London.
A lot of Cadent business is focused on decarbonisation – helping the UK to reach net zero and using their network to transport biogas and hydrogen to homes and businesses. The Cadent Government Affairs team looks at how they can play a part in helping political stakeholders at all levels, from local authority to Westminster and Whitehall, to reach their net zero ambitions. The Cadent Government Affairs team have been with DeHavilland for two years now. They have a tailored, user-friendly service – we work very much as a partnership. We take the time to get to know what’s important to the CG business.

Our service is flexible, and we are always looking to improve to make sure that what we do works for Cadent Gas. We make sure our bespoke regional and national monitoring of the energy sector stays forward-looking. This informs the direction of Cadent Government Affairs work.
- A team that cares
Our policy executives and consultants have a really strong relationship with the Cadent team. We have a weekly 30-minute chat and learn from each other – it’s a two-way, active conversation. Cadent is such a big company with such an enormous customer base. We use their knowledge and insight to tailor their content.
We particularly value the partnership working with DeHavilland and the time they take to understand our business and what is important to us. As a result, DeHavilland deliver insightful and invaluable monitoring to our team.Tom BradleyExternal Affairs Manager
