Local businesses invited to add their support to UK Carbon Emissions Campaign

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 businesses cut their carbon emissions and protect the plane.

Whatever size business or industry, commitments to the campaign could make a real difference – to your business, to your customers and to your running costs.

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 reducing their greenhouse gas emissions.

Even the smallest businesses produce carbon emissions – it could be through the building, business vehicles or the business’ supply chain. The UK government is asking businesses across the country 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 businesses commit, they will get the tools to help them understand their emissions, how to tackle them, and how to share what they are doing with your customers and the wider community.

This November the UK Government is also 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.
