It may sound trite, but Oakstone is not just a job, we actually care about the environment and, having had small businesses previously, we understand...and care...about the challenges small to medium sized enterprises (SME) face.  Compliance with ever more demanding environmental legislation can be a minefield, but done properly it can most definitely pay long-term dividends in increased profitability / reduced costs, enhanced reputation, customer and employee retention. 

Experience shows that SMEs can implement an effective Environmental Management System (EMS) and realise a variety of benefits, not least with your bottom line - something that many big businesses readily tap into with their multi-million dollar Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategies.

Ian Hughes
BSc MSc (Hons) Natural Sciences
Dip. Environmental Management
Consultant / Director

Who said "you can't teach an old dog new tricks" Not so!  After beginning my working life in the Royal Navy and more than a decade of working in the corporate offshore energy industry (communications, operations, safety & environment) I embarked on a new challenge.  

Thirty-odd gap years notwithstanding, I took on a full time 4 year Master's degree in Natural Sciences (all the 'ologies') with a strong leaning towards Sustainability and Environmental Management at world class Lancaster University. Not only was it amongst the best years of my life, but along with my previous years of experience on some major high budget domestic and international projects, (plus running my own business), it enabled me to create Oakstone Environmental Consulting.

Now further qualified in Environmental Management with a recent Level 4 Diploma, I'm confident that we are capable of providing a quality service and also passionate about meeting your needs, I hope you will give us a call.
