No matter what your organization does, how small or large your business or what industry you’re in, you need to take action now to begin your net zero journey.
Wherever each organization is starting from, net zero is all of our business. The Humber is the highest carbon emitting region in the UK, and we all have an important role to play in reducing CO2 levels. We are all part of the supply chain and inextricably linked to each other.
This is a challenge to the Humber’s small and medium size companies in particular – over 85% of businesses have ten people or fewer working for them, and little or no time to focus on net zero. But we and our partners are here to help you!
If your business is completely new to Net Zero, start here and find out how you can take small steps to make a big difference.
