Small and medium-sized businesses have a vital role to play in the UK’s efforts to tackle the climate crisis. While SME’s individual environmental footprints may appear relatively small, in the UK their combined environmental impact is estimated to be more significant than big organisation with most environmental legislation still being aimed at larger organisations. SMEs are extremely diverse and often less well-resourced than larger businesses, so becoming greener is no easy task. Moreover, while most SMEs recognise they can and should do more to reduce their environmental impact, business owners and managers often struggle to find the time and money to invest in initiatives – or simply don’t know where to begin.
