Why Small 99?

In the UK, 99% of businesses have less than 49 employees. Over 5 million of these have less than 9 employees. And so Small99 was born – 99% of our economy is a small business.

This is a huge section of the economy which is overlooked by other organisations offering resources and information on achieving net zero.

Solo business owners lack the time and resources to hire expensive consultants or access complex schemes. 

Small99 gives practical, clear guidance to let you take action in your business today to reduce your environmental footprint.

This isn’t about greenwashing, Press Releases or feel good stories. It’s about the practical, sometimes boring changes you can make to your business that will make an effective change.

If you’re thinking “I want to achieve net zero, but how do I start?“ then you’re in the right place.
