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.
