Helping small businesses become more sustainable through „Green For Micro”.

Climate change is here, and its effects are damaging to our environment. We need to adapt in order to reduce our contribution to greenhouse gas emissions and prepare for the future.

Small businesses have a big part to play. From the products we purchase, to the energy we use, and services we require, there are many ways to make a difference.

Many small business owners understand the growing importance of sustainability and the significant benefits that it can have for local businesses across the country, on everything from efficiencies to cost savings.

Green for Micro is a FREE programme that helps small businesses take the first step towards becoming more sustainable, giving you access to a green consultant who’ll show you the small changes that can have a big impact on your company – and the world around you.

Developing a 'greener’ policy can offer many benefits businesses, including:

Increased cost savings
Improved resource efficiency(for example: using less energy, water, and materials)
Reduced environmental footprint and greenhouse gas emissions
Opportunities for higher and additional value on products and services
Increased access to customers, improved corporate image and reputation
Increased resilience to climate change impacts
