Sustainability reporting for ambitious SMEs looking to share their journey
The world of sustainability is complex and there are so many ways to share the way your business engages with sustainability. Nothing is better than an annual review of your performance against clear benchmarks and KPIs. Making that document readable, engaging and for multiple stakeholders is the gold standard of sustainability communication in 2022.
Why should a business care about sustainability?
1 in 3 consumers now will stop buying from a company that they don't feel is eco-conscious
While there is a lot of greenwashing to be eliminated and consumer education to be completed, it's clear that there is a rise in conscious consumers demanding more of companies.
UK Companies are bound by law to hit 80% reduction in their carbon emissions by 2030
You might not believe this with the way our current government are approaching their own reduction but they have set in law that businesses must meet an 80% reduction by 2030 and then remove the remaining by 2050. That's 10% a year, every year from now.
There is still lots of critical infrastructure required to achieve this but all businesses can do more and until you take on the challenge of understanding where you are, you will continue to fall behind.
Our approach to sustainability
When we started our company nearly 6 years ago we wanted to work with 'good' companies but what on earth does 'good' even mean in the context of business?
We wanted to find ways to accurately measure and reduce any negative impact on the world and we wanted it to be more than just environmental. We started with our Carbon Footprint and then began our journey working with the United Nations Global Compact to explore the Global Goals.
Now we have developed our own approach using these frameworks to create a deeper impact report, perfect for SMEs to engage multiple stakeholders and transition to a truly ethical and sustainable business.
