A new one-stop shop has been launched to help smaller firms reduce energy bills and cut carbon emissions.
The UK Business Climate Hub includes a carbon calculator and tools to help businesses measure, track and report on their emissions.
It offers advice on areas including sustainable sourcing, reducing emissions from freight and the most cost-effective ways of installing solar panels and electric vehicle (EV) charging points.
There are 5.5 million SMEs in the UK, with business and industry accounting for around 25% of emissions. Research shows that 90% of SMEs are keen to tackle climate change, but find it difficult to know how or where to start to find the right solutions to reduce their carbon footprint.
Minister of State for Energy Security and Net Zero, Graham Stuart, said: “The UK has cut its emissions more than any other major economy in the world. More and more businesses are recognising the business benefits of reaching net zero and we’re determined to empower them to do so.
“Whether it’s fitting a low-carbon heat pump, generating energy with solar panels, or reducing the emissions from shipping goods, the new support will ensure businesses can drive towards net zero.”
