Adds Andrew Griffiths: “Our members have reduced their carbon footprints by, on average, 23% in 2020. Even though that was a year greatly affected by Covid-19, it’s still impressive.”
With government legislation regarding carbon reporting for companies recently being announced, he says it’s urgent that SMEs put an actionable, targeted plan together as soon as possible.
It might appear that the legislation only affects the bigger companies, but those companies all have supply networks of SMEs who will have to comply with the regulated companies’ new rules, he says.
“The effects of the regulations will trickle down,” he says. “And it can take two years to put a net zero action plan into practice.”
