"There is a tide of sustainably minded business owners and a wave of good will and determination to do the right thing for the Planet and People. At the same time, there is a lack of clarity and practical support for smaller businesses.
Government funded organisations do a fantastic job encouraging smaller businesses to undertake energy efficiency projects. However, one-off interventions – though important – are short lived. We need an ongoing collective effort to successfully transition to cleaner and fairer future. Every business needs a long-term plan and a communication programme to take their employees, customers, suppliers, and business partners with them."
