Fascinating - would have been good to hear more from Andrew.

Andy Lefley
Assistant Director - Building Services
Anglia Ruskin University

Well presented, Halstar sounds like an interesting tool.

Chris Moorhouse
Energy Team Manager
Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing

Interesting holistic approach. Could fit well in councils.

Andrew Baker
Head of Climate Change
London Borough of Harrow

Interesting contribution but looks fiendishly complicated.

Penny Lord
Business Advisor

Toolkit concept very interesting, cost is probably an issue for smaller firms.

Alan Asbury
Sustainability Team Manager
Aylesbury Vale District Council

Interesting talk.

Robert Johnson
Assistant Directorate Manager
Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

Good to have a practical element to show how to put it into practice.

Zoe Robertson
Environmental Resources Manager
Haringey Council

Bit of a sales pitch but looks like a good model.

John Snook
Norfolk Climate Change Partnership Co-Ordinator
Norfolk County Council

An interesting presentation offering potential solutions and methods to tackle the issues discussed.

Lucy Wills
We All Reuse

A useful and clear demonstration of the level of work and engagement required in a full 360 degree assessment and lower carbon consultancy process. Would be fascinating to see how this might change over time.

Phil Winsor
Assistant Director of Regulatory Services
Milton Keynes Council

Very informative and helpful.

Jon Atkinson
Associate, Sustainability

Very good, but I may be biased!

Abigail Stevenson
Architectural Design Volunteer
Selby Trust

A plan of 850 points sends common sense out of the window, if we address sustainability education earlier then we can use our intuition."

Craig Mitchell
Policy Officer
Welsh Local Government Agency

Interesting approach hinting at the complexity.

Jackie Irelan-Hill
Housing Surveyor
Arun District Council

Changing how we build new properties/buildings can make change to our emissions. Refurbishment also to be considered.

Peter Rugg
Planning and Development Co-Ordinator - The Green Cornwall Programme
Cornwall Council

Complex but good.

Richard Ball
Head of Economy and Tourism
Exeter City Council

Good practical examples, well presented.

Dean Myles
Facilities Manager - Electrical
London Borough of Croyden Council

Andrew presented an interesting tool and approach to reducing Carbon. Don't quite understand it, but I will be looking to learn more.

Connor Bell
Carbon Voyage

Agreed with his view on water security. Said that fresh water is the number 1 problem, climate change talk a close second.

Andrew Nunn
Cabinet Member for Green Environment
Suffolk Coastal District Council

A bit of a sales pitch! Halstar sounds interesting.

Liz Mullany
Business development manager
Newark and Sherwood Homes

Really interesting and provided further aspects to research/explore.

James Swanston
Carbon Voyage

Highlighting the water security issues was good, it's an area often missed.

Runming Yao
The University of Reading

Scientific and useful.

Kevin Leader
Manager Technical Services
Essex County Council

Good overall but more time on case studies would have helped. Holistic approach is dead right!

Andrew Malinowski
Manager Commercial and Contract Property and Assets
Central Bedfordshire Council

Very interesting and introduced an holistic approach to climate change. Will follow up the HalSTAR survey.

Sarender Chana
Head of Design & Compliance
Heart Of England NHS Foundation Trust

Water and climate change interesting approach, rather than purely carbon footprint based approach.

Gabby Mallett
Head of Communities at NEF
The National Energy Foundation

Again excellent, interesting presentation. Would have to look at the studies more closely.

Ron Cook
Health Safety & Environmental Manager
Barking and Dagenham College

Good. More useful background.

Andrew Whelan
Performance & Quality Manager
London Borough of Enfield

Useful and Interesting.

Jason Taylor
Energy Manager
Southampton City Council

Halstar interesting.

Jonathan Ward
Sustainability Project Coordinator
Student Force for Sustainability

Interesting to see advocating holistic view in the private sector.

Wendy Benson
Economic Development Manager
West Sussex County Council

HalSTAR is really interesting, but how do local authorities access this sort of process, expertise, when some of us are given such tiny budgets to address these issues?

Charlie Trousdell
Association for Organics Recycling

Good presentation of how organisations can implement change.

Francis Comyn
Rural and Environmental Programmes Co-ordinator
Rochdale MBC

Interesting outline of a consultancy approach.

Mike Bush
Managing Director
PTL FM Solutions Ltd

Content, facts and statistics were informative and useful.

Belinda Brummer
Group HR Manager

His case studies were interesting and I would like to hear more of this.

Gareth Jones
Project Manager

Interesting to be reminded that sustainability goes beyond low carbon. Social/economic and other issues (e.g. Water) are just as pertinent.

Pete Silman
Project Officer

Enjoyed the detail.

John Gilbert

Clearly a lot of work gone into trying to diagrammatise the issues, but...

Vikas Ahuja
Energy Adviser
Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust

Typical consulting presentation. Yes, tracking sustainability is important but over 450 indicators will be a bit of a challenge."

Margaret Bell
Professor of Transport & Environment
Newcastle University

"Well structured - technically interesting and informative.

Gary James
Director of Informatics
Lincolnshire Teaching PCT

Good example of a structured approach to carbon reduction.

Jeung Lee
Planning and Operations Research Officer
Brunel University

I think your holistic framework can be useful/ applicable to the university settings.

Tony Ashworth
Head of Compliance Services
Kier Group

Very informative, but I am perhaps rather biased.

Julian Lock
Senior Energy Surveyor

Good lecture - should have been longer.

Richard Parker-Harding
Head of Environmental Health
Rother District Council

An interesting model of interactions, useful for project planning.

Suzanne Jones
Programme Supervisor
National Measurement Office

Good introduction into what consultants can offer businesses in the UK.

Cllr Carol Clark
Cabinet Member - Housing and Balanced Communities
Sevenoaks District Council

Design in improvements, but we can't avoid retrofit.

Therese Maguire
Planning Officer
London Borough of Bexley

Its helpful to hear about the technical side of carbon reduction.
