Small businesses called to lead the charge towards net zero

The 'together for our planet' campaign encourages small businesses to pledge to cut their emissions to net zero by 2050 or sooner whilst helping them grow and adapt.

On Friday 28 May Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Energy Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng announced their call for every small business in the UK to take small, practical steps to cut their emissions, this is in response to the UK’s journey to net zero and the run up to the UN Climate Summit COP26 in Glasgow November 2021.

Small businesses can use the UK Business Climate Hub to find practical tools, resources and advice on what steps to take, such as installing smart meters, energy efficiency measures or using cleaner forms of transport.

As the UK’s 6 million small businesses make up 99% of the UK’s enterprises, employ 60% of the UK workforce and generate £2.2 trillion of revenue to the economy, it is seen as critical that these enterprises take action.

As of today, over 40 of the UK’s FTSE 100 companies signed up to the United Nation’s Race to Zero campaign, cementing the UK’s position as the leader of the international business community in going green and tackling climate change.
