How can we empower SMEs to lead on Net Zero?
Here at Energise, we are a growing business with big ambitions to be the catalyst for 1% of the UK becoming Net Zero by 2025. We want other small and medium sized organisations like us to play an active part in building our common future, so we want to make Net Zero easier for you by setting out realistic options, guiding you to take action and aligning your efforts to key industry standards. In our experience, collective action is the root of success, so we have just submitted our response to the CDP 2021 SME Climate Disclosure Framework Consultation which is looking to improve capability for SMEs to report on their climate action. The SME Climate Disclosure Framework seeks to act not only as a data collection tool, but also as a guide to identify important climate metrics and report these to investors, purchasers, policy makers and other stakeholders. To reach and sustain Net Zero we must all play our part and SMEs have a significant role in that collective effort, as together we make up over 90% of the economy. But it can be difficult to cut through the noise and understand where to start.
