“Efficient Building Solutions and its business have a real opportunity to transform buildings in the UK. The energy and climate crises are driving ethical investment into purpose driven companies like EBS, and this is a fantastic opportunity to join an organisation at a time when we can help make a real difference in people’s homes. Philip and his team are creating something unique across EBS’s family of businesses, and I am excited to help develop the company for the future.”
