Climate change and your carbon footprint: Why is it important?

Excerpt from Department for Business & Trade webpage

“Understanding your carbon footprint is the first step for any business wanting to be part of a sustainable future.

What you’ll learn

  • Why climate change is important to you business
  • What actions you can take immediately to start creating benefits
  • Where help and resources are available to make these processes straightforward


Did you know that SMEs account for 50% of all UK business-driven carbon emissions?

Whilst 57% of smaller businesses reported they were aware of the government’s 2050 net zero target, the same research found that 76% of smaller businesses have yet to implement a clean growth strategy.

This session will give you clear understanding of why climate change and carbon emissions are important to any business, why you can’t afford to delay taking action and exactly what actions should be taken to create both commercial and environmental benefits.
