Why net zero is important for small businesses
The UK government is committed to reaching net zero emissions by 2050. There is a growing expectation that customers and government regulations will require you to reduce your carbon footprint
Business and industry accounts for 25% of the UK’s total emissions. Nearly half of these emissions are caused by small companies.
By taking action you can reduce the impact and make significant annual savings on energy bills.
