How can we help you?

As environmental consultants, Hillside support our communities, businesses, local authorities, and the further education sector by building affordable, effective carbon neutral transition projects that combat climate change. 

 

Our flexible approach means we can fit into your team at any stage of the journey - from sourcing emissions, building business cases, securing finance to project managing, and reviewing. Let's make it happen.

 

Benchmarking & Project Evaluation

Establishing the starting point to measure improvement is critical to the successful outcome of your project. 

 

By benchmarking your emissions through energy and environmental audits, we identify the source of your emissions and use this to design your net zero pathway, including key KPIs.

Hillside adopt the international best practice of ISO 14001 (Environmental Management) and ISO 50001 (Energy Management) systems to review the moving parts of your business that affect your emissions. 

 

We'll provide a roadmap to improve your use of renewable energy sources, transport, water, waste and supply chain materials.

Economics & Financial Modelling

We believe in planet protection over profit, but we also understand that you need a solid investment strategy to gain the funds required to start your sustainable energy plan. 


Through an evaluation of the environmental, social and financial cost of a project, we use whole life economics (TOTEX) to model the project opportunity and identify the sustainability impact of your investment. 


Our models articulate and underpin the business case, to achieve financial support (internal or external).

Considering external funding opportunities? Hillside work with a network of sustainability funds which we can help you to access. With our help, you can benefit from green finance and government grants.

Procurement

With over 30 years experience in delivering transformational Corporate Social Responsibility programmes, we have built a trusted network of contacts to deliver your project. 

Our procurement support enables you to select and secure the optimum mix of suppliers so you can kick start your sustainability journey.

Project Delivery & Management

Keeping the ball rolling and ensuring a project progresses at pace, whilst still achieving your objectives can be resource and time-intensive. That's why we take the pressure off and work as part of your team to project manage your net-zero plan. 

Whether the project involves the installation of new technology or educating colleagues and adopting behavioural changes, Hillside will guide you through with environmental management.

We'll work with you from the initial scoping stages right through to delivery, reporting and reviewing once the project is underway.

Measuring & Reporting

Becoming a community beacon for climate action goes hand in hand with continuous improvement in reducing your carbon footprint. We can measure and report on your progress to help you take the next step and share your sustainability successes with stakeholders. 

Accredited by the Institute of Environmental Managers and Assessors (IEMA), Hillside work to the highest standards of environmental auditing and reporting, so you're in good hands.
