Will you join the UK's green business movement?
Even the smallest businesses produce carbon emissions – it could be through your building, your vehicles or your supply chain. The UK government is asking you to commit to cutting those carbon emissions in half by 2030 and to reach ‘net zero’ by 2050. Net zero means that you are putting no more carbon into the atmosphere than you are taking out of it.
2021 is the time
This November the UK government is hosting a major conference in Glasgow where world leaders will get together to commit to urgent action to tackle the climate emergency. It’s called COP26, and all eyes will be on the UK to agree the most ambitious plans to fight climate change the world has ever seen.
The West of England Combined Authority offers SMEs Green Business Grants and Carbon Surveys to help make your business greener and save you money.
