Taking climate action makes your business more attractive to customers, your employees, and investors.
Most of the businesses we surveyed believe that governments will require companies to show they’re taking action on climate change within the next few years.
Particularly for the younger generation, working for an organisation that is taking climate action is increasingly important.
Consumers and other businesses are increasingly looking for and demanding products that demonstrate reduced environmental impact. Make sure you’re tapping into this growing demand.
Governments and banks increasingly provide incentives, like grants, loans and asset financing to support sustainability ambitions and benefit small businesses taking climate action.
Improving your carbon footprint can directly benefit your bottom line. Learn more about the power of small steps to help create a fairer and more sustainable world.
“You can’t manage what you don’t measure…” is a common phrase in business. It means that you can't know whether or not you’re being successful at something unless that success is defined and tracked. At Cogo, we believe that measuring is the starting point for achieving impact.
With recent demand around sustainability and the increasingly important role businesses have to play in the transition to a low-carbon economy, there is a significant opportunity for banks to lead the change and help businesses lower their carbon footprint.
On an individual scale, small businesses have a relatively small carbon footprint. But collectively, these businesses have a significant impact on people and the planet.
To avoid the worst impacts of climate change, we need to reduce emissions by 45% by 2030 and reach net zero by 2050. Achieving these targets requires global systemic change—we need individuals, governments and businesses of all sizes to take climate action. In this blog, we explore the crucial role of SMEs in the transition to net zero and the role banks play in helping small businesses overcome barriers to climate action.
