Ecologi's guide to launching a sustainable business
Businesses have a big role to play in helping to tackle the climate crisis. In the UK, the commercial sector was responsible for 18% of CO2 emissions in 2018 and in the US, industry accounted for more than a fifth of greenhouse gas emissions. Businesses need to play their part to make emissions reductions in order for us to collectively meet the 1.5°C target set by the Paris Agreement.
You might think that as a small business that is just starting out, your actions will have very little impact. However, according to the World bank, small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) make up about 90% of businesses and account for 50% of employment worldwide. If every new business that was launched did everything they could to help the planet as they started out, think of the difference it would make.
