    The SME Climate Hub is a global initiative that aims to mainstream climate action in the small to the medium-sized business community and enable SMEs to build resilient businesses for the future.

Adopt an Environmental Policy 

An Environmental Policy sets out how you will address the environmental impact of your operations and communicates this internally within your organisation and externally to your customers and suppliers. Guidance and templates are widely available online:

Business support organisations  

Many business support organisations, with whom you may already be engaged, now offer some form of advice, guidance or events focused on sustainability and climate action. 

Simple steps for all 

There are many guides available online to help companies get started, many focus on simple steps to reduce energy consumption or are targeted at SMEs. 

Find taxes, grants and business relief  

Environmental taxes encourage your business to operate in a more environmentally friendly way. There are taxes and schemes for different types and size of business. 

You can pay less tax by applying for schemes to help you demonstrate that you’re operating more efficiently and producing waste that’s less damaging. 

This guide helps small businesses find energy grants, schemes and advice to lower emissions and increase efficiency.
