Net Zero for Small Business Owners

What are you emissions are you generating that you have direct control over?

Scope 2

What emissions do you have influence over, such as energy consumption?

Scope 3

Why go Net Zero?

Resilience

Tackling emissions now ensure your business is more resilient to Political, Legal and Social changes in the future.

Lead Your Industry

By achieving net zero before others, you will become a respected leader in your industry and gain fantastic stories to share with customers and PR.

Avoid Future Costs

Carbon taxes are coming. The sooner you remove the carbon from your company, the less risk you have to future financial costs.

Apart from saving the planet, there’s plenty of solid business reasons to reduce your emissions.

Carbon Budget Risk

The carbon in your business is a risk. The next few decades will see Carbon priced more and more, and it’ll become expensive to carry on as normal.

We’re already seeing early indications of this with the Plastic Packaging Tax coming in 2022, where non-recycled plastic is taxed.

By acting on your emissions now, you’ll reduce the risk in your business. 

You’ll be running a more resilient and sustainable business as a result. Not just environmentally, but financially too. 

Supply Chain

As businesses begin to grapple with their Scope 3 emissions, they want to align with other companies also working to reduce their emissions.

A third of large companies are taking carbon emissions into account when making decisions, and this will extend to who they chose to work with. 

Having clear commitment and action to Net Zero ensures you’re in with a better chance of winning contracts and customers than if you were to do nothing.

Customer Stories

Making real progress also gives you plenty of vital stories to share with customers. Consumers are becoming more demanding by the day, and taking action now ensures you’re well aligned to continue attracting and retaining customer loyalty, rather than having your hand forced.

Carbon Budgets

Think of your emissions like your financial budgets. 

Too much spend can increase risk in your business make it unprofitable.

Too much carbon emissions increases the risk of future taxation, negative PR and makes your business unsustainable long term.
