Why “Small99”?

Sadly, it actually has nothing to do with ice cream.

As of 2020, the UK had 6 million small businesses registered, which make up 99% of ALL businesses. 

96% of these businesses have less than 9 employees.

We found that existing guidance focused on larger organisations achieving “net zero”. As founders and owners, you’re often time poor with limited resources to hire consultants. 

Small businesses have been stranded and are overlooked, yet together they can make a huge contribution to reducing the carbon output of the UK economy.

So Small99 was founded to guide the 99% of the economy who are small businesses towards Net Zero, and Beyond.

Small Business Around the World

It’s not just the UK, either. All around the world we see a similar pattern of small businesses having a big economic impact.
