Who We AreOur vision is to be recognised as the energy partner of choice
Our vision is to be recognised as the energy partner of choice, excelling at service delivery to our clients and growing a responsible, ethical business.
Our purpose is to assist clients in identifying and meeting their energy objectives, working in partnership to deliver real, quantifiable value. Our joined-up approach will minimise cost, mitigate risk and reduce carbon emissions for our clients. Through consistent delivery of a best-in-class service, we will continue to enhance our reputation and enjoy scalable business growth through the nurturing of existing relationships and the referrals we receive. We believe that our greatest asset is our people. Our team is passionate about what we do, why we do it and how that translates into real value for our clients.
Our roots go back to 1970 when Andrew Bowden, our Chairman, commenced his career in Energy Management. Andrew’s passion for all things environmental led him to conclude that if he wished to deliver the energy and environmental message to a larger audience he would have to start a consultancy. In 1991 Andrew opened the doors to the forerunners of Carbon2018. Despite the years, the same passion still drives the business. Whilst Andrew has passed on the baton, his knowledge and experience helps guide Carbon2018.
