Anesco receives RoSPA President’s Award for 12 consecutive years of gold standard health & safety

Renewable energy company Anesco is celebrating after achieving an internationally recognised RoSPA Gold award for a 12th consecutive year, recognising its strong commitment to health and safety.

In addition, Anesco has been presented with a prestigious RoSPA President’s Award which is given to those organisations who have received 10 consecutive RoSPA Gold awards.

Headquartered in Reading, UK, Anesco is a market leader in the development, build, maintenance and optimisation of grid-scale solar and energy storage projects. The company has energised more than 1GW of solar and storage assets to date, with a target to safely energise a further 1GW by 2030.

In addition, Anesco is helping reduce fuel poverty and lowering emissions by improving the energy efficiency of homes, as a managing agent for the government’s ECO scheme. In the last five years alone, Anesco’s ECO team has overseen the installation of measures that will save 1.5 million tonnes of carbon from being produced during their lifetime.

With around 250 permanent members of staff employed across the UK, Anesco also has a growing presence across Europe, including within the Netherlands, Denmark and Germany, and as of 2024 Belgium.

Commenting on the award, Anesco CEO, Hildagarde McCarville, said: “Safety is one of our core values at Anesco – it is part of our DNA – and working closely with our employees, suppliers, clients and the local communities in which we operate, we remain committed to upholding the highest standards of safety and delivering zero harm.

“Achieving RoSPA Gold for 12 consecutive years is fantastic recognition and I thank every single member of the team for supporting us in making Anesco such a safe and pleasant place to be. I’d also like to say a special thank you to our dedicated HSEQ team, who continue to passionately drive best practice across all aspects of our business.”

Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is one of the UK’s longest-running H&S industry awards. Building on its success, Anesco is now focused on achieving an Order of Distinction, presented to companies who secure 15 RoSPA gold awards.

Julia Small, RoSPA’s Achievements Director, said: “Workplace accidents don’t just pose financial risks and operational disruptions; they significantly impact the quality of life for individuals. This is why acknowledging and rewarding excellent safety performance is vital.

“We congratulate Anesco for winning a prestigious RoSPA Award and showing an unwavering commitment to keeping employees, clients and customers safe from accidental harm and injury.”

Sponsored by Croner-i, the RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, and receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for the health and safety industry.

Ben Chaplain, Managing Director at Croner-i, said: “We are proud to sponsor the RoSPA Awards for a second year, which emphasises our dedication to prioritising health and safety—an essential foundation for lasting success and wellbeing at work.”
