Our story


In 2013 Eco Approach founder Tom Harrington set out to disrupt the property industry with his online estate agency.

The early days were not easy. Running a business out of a spare room was tough. Finding reliable partners to issue certificates for clients nationwide was even tougher.

Tom had a ‘lightbulb’ moment.

Convinced his frustrations were experienced by estate agents nationwide, Eco Approach pivoted to focus on property certification.

Tom believed by building a company that was reliable, trusted and backed by excellent customer service and high quality work, the market would respond favourably. 

Eco Approach is now the UK’s largest supplier of property certificates. We serve landlords, property companies, housing associations and local governments. Clients include ‘big 6’ energy firms and blue chip organisations.

Along the way we’ve added electrical, gas heating and Net Zero services. 


We’re also embracing tomorrows technology and the opportunities around energy efficiency. 

Through our work we’re committed to helping make the planet greener, more sustainable and a better place for everyone. 

Together, on the right path.
