Green Home Systems reach EY Entrepreneur Of The Year finals

EY entrepreneur of the year

The founders of Green Home Systems have been shortlisted as Scotland finalists for the prestigious EY Entrepreneur of The Year 2023 awards. Brothers Peter and Steven Easton, based in Ayrshire, have been recognised for their achievements in developing an impact-driven business model that seeks to eradicate fuel poverty while decarbonising buildings.

EY Entrepreneur Of The Year is a unique global programme that recognises entrepreneurial achievement among individuals and companies that demonstrate vision, leadership and success. The prestigious award celebrates business leaders across the country who strive to better their community, have an innovative spirit and have built an impressive, impactful lasting business legacy during their careers.

Having made the shortlist of finalists, Peter and Steven will now join an esteemed global network of more than 2,500 EY Entrepreneur Of The Year alumni.

The brothers founded Green Home Systems in 2014 as an energy efficiency specialist that operates throughout Scotland with ambition to scale UK-wide. It installs thermal insulation, smart heating systems, renewable energy technologies, and electric vehicle charge points. The impact-driven company has completed more than 16,500 energy efficiency projects, lifted more than 7,000 families out of fuel poverty, and abated more than 500,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being emitted into the atmosphere.

Peter and Steven will be competing against 18 other entrepreneurs in the Scotland region, where previous winners have included Lord Haughey of City Refrigeration and the founders of Ooni Pizzas and QTS. The regional winners will be announced in September and then go on to become national finalists, with the overall UK winner being announced in October.

“We would like to thank all our customers and partners for helping us grow and develop a business of scale and value. We are delighted at the nomination, and the great recognition this brings to our dedicated staff who allow us to make such a significant impact on fuel poverty and climate change.”
