When it comes to environmentally friendly business practice, small businesses are leading the way, according to a poll conducted by BT Tradespace.

It found they were more likely to use technology such as video or telephone conferencing instead of asking employees to travel to meetings, as well as encouraging staff to leave their cars at home.

Of the 136 businesses taking part in the poll, a quarter were found to be helping the environment through clamping down on commuting, with another 25 per cent implementing recycling at work and 17 per cent reducing their energy use.

Only two per cent surveyed were found to be doing nothing at all to help the environment.

Jennifer Mowat, director of BT Tradespace, says: ‘Companies can help the environment in many ways, and the size of SMEs allows them to be more flexible in adopting new work patterns.’
