Tanya Bascombe, Joint General Manager of EOCA said, “We are delighted to be working with Es. His combination of a thorough understanding of environmental issues and his passion for excelling in outdoor activities make him well placed to act as an ambassador for the association”.

Es commented that “From spending considerable amounts of time in mountainous regions, I have seen first hand the impact of climate change on glaciers, snowlines and flora. The impact of unsustainable tourism practices is also very evident. For these reasons I am delighted to have the opportunity to support and promote an organization which makes a real difference in supporting conservation in the great outdoor environments”.

Richard Woodall, Marketing Manager for Mountain Equipment added “ Es is a very dedicated athlete, who we are very proud to be working with. In addition, his passion for conservation and the environment make him an ideal advocate for EOCA which we are delighted to be a member of”.
