Study shows UK SMEs struggle with sustainability and decarbonisation, posing risk to carbon-free future
UK SMEs struggle with sustainability and decarbonisation, posing a risk to a carbon-free future.
A new study has revealed that nearly half of all UK small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) do not have anybody leading their sustainability efforts, and almost four million do not have a strategy to decarbonise their operations.
