The UK government has partnered with business owners and respected climate groups to help businesses become greener and cut carbon emissions.
Whatever size your business or industry you’re in, your commitment to cut carbon emissions and protect the planet could make a real difference – to your business, to your customers, to your community, to the planet – and to your energy bills!
That’s why the UK government has created the UK Business Climate Hub, a campaign that asks UK small businesses of up to 250 employees to join the fight against climate change by committing to cutting their greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030, and to net zero by 2050 or sooner.
This is a particular priority ahead of the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow this November.
Top reasons to cut carbon emissions and become a greener business
Grow your business
It can be hard to think as far as 2030 when we’re all building back from coronavirus. But cutting emissions can mean saving money and give you a competitive advantage today. You will also be able to display a logo to show your commitment, attracting the growing number of customers for whom climate change really matters.
Future-proof your business
The UK is changing. For example, by 2030 you won’t be able to buy new petrol and diesel cars in the UK, while zero-emission vehicles could support 40,000 jobs. Getting ahead of other countries like this will create new opportunities here in the UK.
Be part of the solution
We all want to create a better planet, but it can be hard to know where to start. Through this commitment, join other businesses, get tips, make a plan, and be confident that you are really making a difference.
