The portal offers detailed advice on everything from sourcing products from green suppliers and reducing emissions from freight and logistics to the most cost-effective ways of installing solar panels and electric vehicle (EV) charging points.
Research shows 90 per cent of SMEs are keen to tackle climate change, but find it difficult to know how or where to start. Graham Stuart, Minister for Energy Security and Net Zero, explained:
“More and more businesses are recognising the business benefits of reaching net zero and we’re determined to empower them to do so. The new UK Business Climate Hub is a one-stop-shop for businesses to find practical advice to reduce their carbon footprint and save on their energy bills.
“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.”
The UK Business Climate Hub was developed in partnership with a range of national organisations, including the Federation of Small Business (FSB), the Institute of Directors (IoD), the British Business Bank, HSBC, NatWest, Electricity North West and National Grid, among others.
