With energy and fuel costs increasing, now is a great time for businesses to think about how they could take action to reduce their emissions.
To help businesses, we’ve launched the NatWest Carbon Planner, a free-to-use digital platform that could help UK businesses take action to reduce their emissions.
Solange Chamberlain, our Chief Operating Officer, Commercial & Institutional, says: “Businesses are coming under increasing pressure due to rising costs. Many are fundamentally strong businesses that are experiencing a massive shock to input prices.”
“As a bank, we could help businesses invest to save by switching from volatile commodities to renewable sources with predictable prices, and support businesses in taking actions to measure, evaluate and act to reduce their climate impact.
“Every business should consider if cutting carbon could cut costs, and it’s important that we support the business community to explore their options, including access to finance* so they could invest in cost-reducing measures like energy efficiency.”
