Small business sustainability: The benefits of going net zero

Posted: Wed 8th Sep 2021

Some business owners worry that becoming more environmentally sustainable will be costly, but can going net zero actually help save you money?

In this Plan it with Purpose video, Adam Bastock, founder of Small 99, discusses the benefits business owners can expect to see when going net zero.

Adam also shares his thoughts on what the future of sustainability looks like, and why it's important founders don't leave it too late in considering net zero in their business plans.

99% of businesses in the UK are small and existing guidance isn’t accessible for them to take action. Many existing organisations and government agencies focus their efforts on advising large multinationals. Reducing the carbon impact of Sainsburys will provide a better return on their efforts than chasing many small ones. This has meant small businesses are often overlooked. While larger organisations chase after the 1% to make changes, we are here to advise you, the small99, on how you can make an impact today. So, please join me on this journey as we transform the carbon output of the UK’s economy, one small business at a time.
