In preparation for the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow in November, the government launched the Together for our Planet campaign (https://together-for-our-planet.ukcop26.org/), calling on every small business in the UK to take small, practical steps to commit to cutting their greenhouse gas emissions.

The Together for our Planet campaign encourages small businesses of up to 250 employees to visit the UK Business Climate Hub (https://smeclimatehub.org/uk/) and begin their journey to net zero by making the SME Climate Commitment (https://smeclimatehub.org/sme-climate-commitment/).

This pledge is to halve greenhouse gas emissions before 2030, achieve net zero emissions before 2050, and share information on their progress each year.

The British Business Bank Finance Hub has lots of information on how small businesses can play a significant role in fighting climate change and drive sustainable growth, including:

• The commitment to net zero

• Top reasons for cutting carbon emissions

• 5 ways to get financial support to go green
