Testimonials

“Our ISO 14001 certification audit was looming & we realised we needed support to get back on track. Anya took us through the transition process, highlighting where we needed to focus & helping engage with key personnel. With a change of staff who led on the EMS this year, it was important that the project ran smoothly, was interesting and rewarding. We had a stress free transition to ISO 14001:2015 – indeed we sailed through!”

– Nigel Dean, Head of Commercial Operations at Roffey Park Institute

 

“The University of Kent is the size of a small town in terms of its geographical size, population and operations, and contains a good deal more in the way of environmental featureand risks.  Building an EMS was a daunting task – especially as the elaborate system which appeared necessary would have been unwieldy and doomed to failure.  Anya provided the perfect means to help us draw the many strands together into a really lean and manageable system which nevertheless covers all our requirements and really delivers.  Her vision of how this would take shape overall, her wide and detailed subject knowledge, and her highly personable manner were vital to driving the project forward, and getting numerous key players enthused.  We achieved accredited certification to ISO 14001 in just 14 months, which is an amazing feat for an organisation of this size and complexity!  I would have no hesitation in recommending Anya to anyone.”

– Andrew Briggs, Fire Safety & Environment Adviser at University of Kent

 

“We contracted Anya as our Lead ESOS Assessor. Anya managed the project seamlessly with enthusiastic expertise, meeting the tight legislative deadline by finding solutions to overcome difficulties with data collection and analysis. The ESOS Report has provided the organisation with real business-benefit improvement recommendations. Working with Anya throughout the process, including energy audits of offices and project sites, was an absolute pleasure and I would readily recommend Eshcon Ltd.”

– Rebecca Taylor, Sustainability Manager at Signalling Solutions SSL / Alstom 

 

“Whilst Roband has always been environmentally conscious, it became apparent that formal recognition in the form of ISO14001 would be advantageous. Eshcon Ltd was engaged to implement our Environmental Management System. Actively involving staff along the way, Anya developed an EMS that was tailored to suit the company and guided us through the process to successful certification to ISO14001, which has now become a key requirement for our customers. We were very pleased with the service.” 

– Andrew Gold, Managing Director at Roband Electronics

 

“I first worked with Anya in 2010 when she supported our initial application for the Carbon Trust Standard and more recently when we successfully re-applied. On both occasions I found it very easy to work with her and was impressed by her professionalism and subject matter expertise. Anya provides well considered advice and guidance and was certainly instrumental in helping us to achieve CTS success first time on both occasions. I would definitely recommend Anya to anyone requiring assistance or advice and can endorse her work first hand as a satisfied customer.”

     – David Gardiner, Technical Manager EMEAR at Cisco Systems

 

“We needed external help to review all our environmental policies and general approach to reducing our carbon footprint. Anya dealt with all the detail and made it very easy. She produced recommendations that were very suitable for the size and style of our business. And we flew through our ISO14001 re-assessment.”

     – Ian Parkes, Managing Director at SOA Development

 

“Anya is an inspirational training provider, having delivered our key sustainability training. She has helped shape our training delivery for staff and members alike and this has subsequently enhanced our wider environmental policy. We benefited from Anya’s expertise in this field and working closely together has helped us develop a key plan for advancement of the authority’s environmental credentials and associated compliance. I highly recommend Anya, she is a pleasure to work with and delivers training in an engaging manner.”

     – Wayne Bexton, Principal Policy Officer at Derbyshire County Council

 

“Before our external audit for ISO 14001 recertification we wanted to make sure we’d covered everything that   the   new   standard   required.   Anya   reviewed   all   the   documentation   but   also   interviewed top management.  This  was  particularly  useful  to  help  us  prepare  for  the  audit  &  gave  us  the confidence  to proceed.”

– Anna Glue, Sustainability Officer at the University of Reading

 

 “Each year Hogg Robinson Group collects and presents a great deal of information for our Annual Report. Eshcon handles all the relevant  energy and travel data from our entities  across the world, collating it and making  the  GHG  emissions  calculations.  Anya ensures  the  project  runs  smoothly  and  provides  all  the information succinctly, for inclusion in our Annual Report on time.”

– Michael Drake, Group Financial Controller at Hogg Robinson Group

 

“Anya is highly experienced and knowledgeable in her field and also extremely personable and a joy to work with. Anya worked with Bell Microsystems on our Carbon Reduction project and not only provided clear, detailed audits and reports but also credible business focussed advice we were able to action. I would highly recommend working with Anya.”

     – Katie Prior, Marketing Manager at Bell Microsystems

 

“Anya acted as our Lead ESOS Assessor carrying out detailed data analysis & energy audits on our behalf – no mean feat considering the amount of raw data we threw in her direction. Nothing phased her and as a result, with Anya’s knowledge and experience, we were able to comply with the ESOS submission requirements. Anya was also very pragmatic with her recommendations for energy consumption improvements. Overall I’d not hesitate to recommend her.”

– Nick House, Health and Safety Officer at Leaders

 

“Anya assessed our company’s performance for the Carbon Trust Water Standard. Anya was very professional, competent and thorough, demonstrating an excellent understanding of the criteria to achieve the requirements of the Water Standard. Her underlying knowledge and natural friendly personality made the assessment informative, worthwhile and a pleasure to undertake.”

– Peter Woolstenholmes, Energy Manager at Berendsen

 

“We employed the services of Anya in 2011. I worked closely with Anya and found her to be very knowledgeable in her field and a pleasure to work with. I would have no hesitation in recommending Anya to other people in our line of work and beyond. She would be a great asset to any company.”

     – Michael Barrett, SQE Director at JSM Construction

 

“When selecting a lead assessor for our ESOS compliance, it was very clear to the team that Anya (Eshcon ) would be an ideal supplier of this service. Anya made it very clear and easy for us to decide on what level of service that could be undertaken regarding who would collate what data and this resulted in the whole process running very smoothly. The actual energy audit day was both enjoyable and constructive that lead to improvement recommendations not previously undertaken at our site, which brought home the true value of what ESOS should.”

– Dean Shackel, Facilities Manager at Sony DADC

 

“I had been asked by a potential customer for my Environmental Policy. Eshcon reviewed the environmental impacts of my business, wrote me a bespoke policy relevant to my company and gave me ideas for improvements and cost savings. I would recommend this service to any business.”

     – Mike Steer, MD at Payline Payroll

 

“I would have to say working alongside Anya was exciting and rewarding. Anya helped me to develop a Carbon Neutral delivery programme for Construction Fit Out projects alongside PAS2050 a Framework for Carbon Auditing. Anya’s ability to understand and appreciate a variety of aspects whilst providing informed professional advice was very beneficial in delivering carbon neutral projects. Anya’s depth of knowledge on other environmental subject matters is also invaluable and I would recommend Anya’s services to any potential Client or Business Partner.”

     – Liam O’Dell, Project Specialist at Network Rail Limited – whilst at BW Interiors

 

“Having known Anya for a number of years and been associated with her on various projects, such as the Environment & Energy Awards judging panel, I have come to admire her thoroughness and breadth of environmental expertise, both of which I would highly recommend to any prospective clients of hers.”

     – Russell Foster (retired), former CEO of IEMA (Institute of Environmental Management & Assessment)

 

“Over the last 3 years I have worked with Anya in her capacity as an Environmental Consultant. Anya provided a level of expertise and guidance on a number of projects for our company that produced some outstanding results. I have always found Anya to be a dedicated and committed professional and would have no hesitation in recommending her to any other organisation.”

     – Tom King, Energy Manager, Raytheon Systems 

 

“Anya was as our Lead ESOS Assessor carrying out energy audits of our care homes. I was pleased how smoothly  the  project  went  as  she  liaised  with  site  staff  &  partners  to  ensure  data  was  obtained  and  the audits scheduled. The recommendations she gave were useful and relevant to our activities. I would not hesitate to recommend Anya to anyone looking to meet new compliance rules or simply wishing to make their organisation more effectively managed.”

“Anya Ledwith has successfully created and implemented an environmental management system for Crawley Council. We are now proud to be one of the small number of UK local authorities with ISO 14001 and EMAS: we could not have achieved without her expertise. She has provided expert advice on projects and input into activities across the council, motivating at all levels in a range of innovative ways to embrace the green agenda. Her understanding, knowledge and drive are impressive and will, I’m sure, bring benefits to many more organisations.”

     – Angela Tanner – Head of Environmental Services, Crawley Borough Council 

 

“I have worked with Anya Ledwith for the last 2 years. Anya has provided clear guidance and direction to Q Hotels in its bid to obtain the Carbon Trust Standard accreditation and to prepare for its first CRC submission. Anya was able to make clear what was needed to be done, when and by whom, from all the rules and regulations surrounding these submissions, and in a very supportive and understanding manner, becoming very much a part of our team.  I would have no hesitation in using Anya’s services in the future.”

     – Philip King, Director of Property, QHotels
