Avieco is a market-leading sustainability consultancy. We know that every business must step up to create a sustainable future for all of us. Over the last 13 years, we have been inspiring, helping and empowering businesses to become more sustainable. Right from understanding your impact on the environment and people to working out what really matters to you and your business.
We help you set a direction and a strategy, adopt targets and messages that resonate with your business, and take action in a proportionate, effective way.
We understand that every organisation has different needs. We want you to know that a workable sustainable solution is possible and profitable.
A sustainable world is a viable world, in which each of us can thrive, in which our children and future generations will thrive. There is no alternative if humanity is to prosper and we must each do our bit. Achieving such a world means large scale change to the way we live, the way we run our businesses, the way our countries are governed.
MEET OUR LEADERSHIP TEAM
In 2006 I took a life changing decision; leaving behind a career in industry, I founded Avieco (then Carbon Smart) with a mission to help UK and international businesses be smart about sustainability. Do the things that make a difference to the world and for themselves – business and sustainability can be a great mix. Why did I do it? Quite simply, as a father of two, it was time to play my part in ensuring they could look forward to a sustainable future. Thirteen years later, the awesome team at Avieco is doing just that with hundreds of great UK and global businesses.
The natural world, and how it evolves, have always held a fascination for me. Finding the right balance between human development and protecting species, habitats and landscapes is the biggest challenge of our time. On leaving university I chose to focus my career on helping to solve this issue, and spent several years working at consultancies primarily centred on sustainability in the domestic and public sectors. In 2010, I was looking for a new challenge and when Ben asked me to join him in owning, growing and leading Avieco I jumped at the chance. I’m hugely proud of what we’ve achieved to date – as a company, with our clients and for our team. There’s still much to do, and I can’t wait to get stuck in.
Time and again we go the extra mile to make sustainability work for you. We get sustainability – the technologies, the laws, the numbers and the frameworks. Our clients come back to us because we don’t fit them to us, we fit us to them. We listen and understand, support & empower our clients to make the right sustainability decisions.
Avieco is a young, dynamic company working with the public and private sectors. Our business is rapidly growing and we are always interested to hear from passionate environmental professionals who want to make sustainability work.
I was impressed with the thoroughness and level of detail that our data set was analysed in. Presenting an extensive data set in an easy to use format was of great value in communicating the outcome of the work internally, and prioritising areas of the supply chain for future action.
Alan Sweeting, Global Health, Safety and Environment Senior Manager, Allen & Overy LLP
Avieco supported us in collating and organising data to develop a robust risk assessment process. They have been easy to work with, responsive to our requirements and pragmatic in their solutions.

Avieco has been the preferred environmental consultant since the beginning of our journey to become a sustainable company. Dentsu Aegis has worked with Avieco’s experts on various areas, such as carbon footprint reporting and assurance support, and recently also advised us how to switch our global network to renewable electricity. The team’s expertise on environmental sustainability is impressive, and the work delivered is always of highest standard.
Lars Holm, Global Senior Manager CSR, Dentsu Aegis Network
Avieco informatively led us through the processes needed to reduce our carbon footprint. With their clear and concise advice we have been able to effectively reduce our energy and waste levels. Avieco made the complex notion of energy efficiency into a manageable and achievable reality
Nigel Pink, Group Engineering Manager, Dominos UK & Ireland Ltd
Avieco delivered exactly the workshop we needed to get our sustainability team and regional leads on the same page when it comes to ‘market-based’ reporting. It’s a challenging area to tackle for a global business – particularly when we operate in a number of markets where there is little or no choice in terms of energy purchasing. Avieco has given us the knowledge and tools to ensure we get our disclosures right – they really exceeded my expectations for what we could achieve in one afternoon!
Dr Julia Rowe, Group Sustainability Advisor, Johnson Matthey
We get that change is not easy. But we must be brave, challenge old ways, set new habits, embrace new thinking.
