Energise

www.energise.com

In 2008, husband and wife duo Simon and Tamsin Alsbury set off on a mission to “save the world” by educating organisations on the importance and practicalities of improving their energy efficiency. What they discovered along the way was that running a business “the right way,” where business is used as a vehicle for good both in the work it delivers and the way it relates to its stakeholders, is the key to real change. Because living more sustainably, being mindful of the environment we’re in and our relationship to this planet we call home, is less about climate change and more about culture change.

And while our understanding of what’s required to shift our economy towards Net Zero and a more sustainable future has changed over the past decade, our commitment and passion have not.

Xeed

www.xeedesg.co.uk

As much of the burden of reversing climate change will fall onto the shoulders of business, there needs to be short term reward for those that take up the challenge. Many boards fear a “green premium” that will come with a new sustainability strategy but change is coming, whether businesses like it or not, so we will help your business to identify the upside in doing the right thing. We are passionate advocates of reversing climate change, and we have deep relationships with many people and organisations who are leading that charge. However, Xeed ESG’s approach is to look at the challenges our clients throw at us through commercial eyes so that you can see the potential return on investment as soon as possible.
