SMEs (small-medium enterprises) make up 99% of the UK business population and contribute half of all business-driven emissions in the UK. But according to a 2021 survey by the British Business Bank, only 6% are likely to have measured their carbon footprint in the last five years. Ecologi also found that over 4 in 10 (41%) of SMEs would like their business to have a net-zero strategy, but feel confused about how to get started.
The team at Ecologi champion SMEs as green revolutionaries, empowering them on their journey to reduce emissions and take climate action. There are millions of SMEs in the UK and they believe that with the right support, they can help turn the tide on the climate crisis.
SMEs are powerful enough to make an impact, agile enough to act fast, and unstoppable when working collectively. Just imagine what would happen if every SME rose up and took action as one? It was this idea that really caught us and we knew we had to be a part of it.
Since our partnership with Ecologi we are proud to have achieved 6 months of climate impact, 500 trees funded, 1 year of climate impact and 50 tonnes of CO2e avoided!
