Net Zero Commitment – Working together for a brighter future

Net Zero Pledge

Net Zero Pledge

One year ago today, the SME Climate Hub announced its launch in the midst of Climate Week New York. Since then, thousands of small businesses – and over 60,000 employees – have joined the commitment to take immediate climate action, halving emissions by 2030, and becoming net zero by 2050 or sooner. The SME Climate Hub encompasses every continent, with commitments from 80 countries and counting. Though these companies vary in sector, region and size, they all have one thing in common. They are going further, faster, to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Over 80% of businesses committed to the SME Climate Hub are setting their sights on net zero by 2030 or 2040. We’re proud to have them on board.

To the small business community working towards net zero, we thank you. As a society, we cannot limit the emissions needed without you. It’s no longer only the large corporations and governments that hold the keys to a better planet — every business, no matter the size, needs to go all in for 2030.

As we head into the initiative’s second year, we acknowledge there are still substantial strides to be made. Every business needs to set ambitious climate targets — but more importantly, they need to move quickly and comprehensively towards action. We are proud to provide our community with the tools and resources they need to get there. With less than two months before world leaders convene at COP26, now is the time to stand up and be counted in the Race to Zero.
