Make carbon reporting easier, faster and more rewarding for small businesses

More and more small businesses want to be part of the race to net zero – but right now, measuring and reporting emissions is challenging.

There isn’t a standard for SMEs to follow when reporting emissions – a December 2022 Policy Voice survey showed that only 22% of IoD members’ organisations measure their carbon footprint

That’s the problem that a new collaborative programme, Perseus, is aiming to solve. It aims to automate greenhouse gas reporting for every SME in the UK, making the race zero easier, faster, and more rewarding for small businesses.

It’s run by net-zero data non-profit Icebreaker One and Bankers for Net Zero, the UK chapter of the UN’s Net-Zero Banking Alliance. Learn more and join here.

The IoD is working in partnership with B4NZ and Icebreaker One to deliver a demonstrator by COP28 in December. Now, the project is looking for more small businesses to participate by joining an advisory group, to shape its plans and make sure they meet your needs.
