Give your business a greener future

As communities across the world continue to grapple with the environmental challenges brought about by climate change, more and more small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) in Oxfordshire are looking to join the global drive towards net zero emissions by 2050.

But what does this mean, and why is it so important? Put simply, achieving net zero means that a business has reduced its greenhouse gas emissions to the point where they are balanced by the amount removed from the atmosphere.

To achieve net zero, however, can seem like a daunting task. That’s why, working with partners, we have brought together into a one-stop-shop for Oxfordshire SMEs the support and resources available in Oxfordshire and more widely to help you on your net zero journey – whatever size of business you are, sector you are in, or stage you are at.
