This year, businesses of all sizes around the UK are committing to do their bit to cut carbon emissions and protect the planet.
The UK government has partnered with business owners and respected climate groups to help you join them today.
No matter how small your business or what industry you’re in, your commitment could make a real difference – to your business, to your customers, to your community, to the planet – and to your energy bills!
Even the smallest businesses produce carbon emissions – it could be through your building, your vehicles or your supply chain. We’re 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.
When you commit, we’ll get in touch with tools to help you understand your emissions, how to tackle them, and how to share what you’re doing with your customers and your community. And in the following months we’ll keep you up to date with the latest ideas and incentives to help you meet your commitment.
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.
And you can be part of it. Become one of thousands of small business climate leaders across the UK this year and commit today.
