Eshcon is FSB Green Business of the Year
Environmental consultancy Eshcon has been crowned Green Business of the Year at the FSB Awards.
Eshcon joined hundreds of business people from across the South East at the ceremony overlooking Sandown Racecourse to celebrate the 12 awards categories.
Anya Ledwith, Eshcon’s director, said “I am thrilled to be Green Business of the Year, demonstrating how good environmental management brings commercial benefit. Thank you for the recognition.”
Anya explained how she manages the company’s own impacts & costs, reducing carbon emissions by 40%, & how she supports other organisations, such as Gatwick Diamond Business, the Sussex Community Foundation & the University of Sussex.
Plus the work Eshcon does with its clients – their reductions & successes. Anya has helped businesses large & small reduce their energy & carbon emissions, water & waste; she has put in Environmental Management Systems & helped them successfully certify to ISO 14001; Anya supports her clients throughout the project, so they get the best results they want & the best out of it – learning, doing, achieving.
Anya said “This is how I deliver my mission to make environmental management the business norm. And I love what I do!”
The FSB runs a national awards scheme, with regional events for the 12 awards categories. Winning the SE Awards means Eshcon goes forward to the national final in May.
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
