We understand the challenges faced by small businesses. We can help you understand what climate change means to your business, why it matters, and how to begin your journey to carbon neutrality.
We’re convinced that adopting environmentally friendly practices are good for business. For many businesses this is a new area of opportunity and it can seem daunting with many new practices to consider. Unlike large corporates, most small businesses don’t have the luxury of appointing full-time sustainability officers nor the leverage to reach into their supply chains and affect change.
At Intsilo, we can help you understand how to start your journey along the path of sustainability on a limited budget. We know what it’s like to run a small business and the financial, regulatory and market pressures that can make it hard to focus on your core business.
We can help you decide what your business could and should do to contribute to establish its green credentials without spending a fortune. While some of the techniques and processes we advocate (such as carbon foot printing) are not yet regulatory requirements, we see growing consumer interest in green certification. Those businesses who are early adopters may well gain a competitive advantage in being at the front of the green business revolution.
As a small business owner you may feel that the carbon emissions and pollution you create is insignificant compared to the major corporates. And that is a fair point however, as we get ever closer to the carbon neutral future of 2050, you can expect your customers and stakeholders to place greater value on businesses who can prove their environmental credentials. If you can’t show that you have taken the right actions to adapt then you risk losing business to competitors who have.
