Taking action on climate change will help businesses to grow, seize new opportunities and adapt against the challenges of a changing planet. The first step SMEs can take is to visit the UK Business Climate Hub and sign up to the globally recognised SME Climate Commitment. Here SMEs can also get help and advice on how to be greener and save money.

Additionally, almost £5 billion of funding is available to help UK businesses become greener as part of the government’s commitment to reach net zero emissions by 2050. The latest funding opportunities can be found here:
