Smallbusinessjourney.com aims to provide practical hints and tips on how businesses can reduce their impact on the environment and case studies of those who have already successfully done so.

Chair of the Small Business Consortium David Grayson says that the prominence of small businesses in the UK economy means that it is ‘crucial’ they have access to the right resources to tackle climate change.

Grayson hopes that the new website will help business owners ‘wake up to the wider benefits of implementing responsible practices, such as staff retention, positive publicity and reduced overheads.’

‘This way they can reduce their carbon footprint, as they continue to grow their business,’ he adds.

Environmental concerns are becoming increasingly important to businesses’ profitability and ethos.

The University of Strathclyde recently launched the first MSc in Environmental Entrepreneurship in the UK.
