Sept 17 Newsletter – ESOS & Tips on How to Win Awards

Eshcon regularly sends out an e-newsletter to contacts – here’s the latest from September 2017.

 

ESOS Phase 2

ESOS (Energy Saving Opportunities Scheme) is in Phase 2 & companies are advised to get going on the work soon, to avoid the rushes experienced at the last deadline. Energy audits can be done from now onwards, to help identify opportunities to save energy & money.
As a Lead ESOS Assessor I can help you with your energy assessments & ISO 50001.

A New Look for ESHCon

Over summer I’ve been busy redesigning my brand. I have a new look website & logo. These all revolve around my mission to make environmental management the business norm. Check it out.

Student Mentor Scheme

I am a Student Mentor on the programme run by the University of Sussex. This is how it benefits both the student & myself.

Tips on How to Win Awards

As a judge of national & regional business awards, I thought I’d give some insight into the judging process, which could help you improve your own awards submissions.

News

Floods – from Texas to Bangladesh

You can’t have missed the news about the extreme weather experienced across the globe recently, from Hurricane Harvey in USA to the dreadful flooding in Bangladesh. Thousands have been killed & millions affected, losing their homes, farmland & livelihoods. Climate change is just making these natural phenomena worse & more frequent. How would your business cope in even far less extreme conditions? Start thinking about the risks facing your business now.

 

Edie Awards

I am again judging the edie Sustainability Leaders Awards this year. Enter now to gain the recognition you deserve, on a national level. From supply chains to water, from carbon to CSR, from energy to Sustainable Business of the Year – choose from the 15 categories. Closing date 12th September.

 

For Fish’s Sake

The huge issue of plastic pollution in our oceans is being raised by Hubbub, humorously entitled For Fish’s Sake. Here’s one of their sculptures, made from plastic litter, I saw on the Brighton seafront recently.

 

An Inconvenient Sequel

11 years on from the first film, Al Gore has released An Inconvenient Sequel. The science of climate change, the consequences & what we all need to be doing now. Have you seen it yet? Maybe not as hard hitting as the former, but still worth checking out.
