“Having acted as a Lead Auditor for a large number of International companies over the past few years, it is very rare that I have come across an International organisation, who as first time auditees, have required so few corrective actions. This was the case with Eaton Towers when I audited their 2017 greenhouse gas emissions. All of the staff at Eaton Towers should be commended for their hard work, dedication, desire and drive to ensure that they sustainably manage and reduce the impact which their operations have on our planet.”
