BHESCo was founded as a ‘for-purpose’ social enterprise, which means that our whole reason for being is to deliver meaningful social and environmental value to the communities in which we work.
BHESCo is an impact-driven organisation who measure success not by profits and dividends but by the savings achieved in energy costs and carbon emissions.
BHESCo are very proud of the remarkable things we have achieved since we were founded in 2012 and we are excited to grow our business and expand our reach and impact.
As a not-for-profit social enterprise it is important for BHESCo to demonstrate the social and environmental value that our projects deliver to the community.
Here are some of the most important achievements from our first ten years in business:
