This week marked the beginning of the 28th Annual Climate Change Conference of the Parties – COP28 in Dubai.
As the global community continues to face an increase in natural disasters, with an unprecedented summer of heatwaves predicted in Australia this summer, it is clear we need action, fast.
While the gravity of this situation can feel daunting, particularly for small to medium businesses (SMBs) who may feel their impact is negligible, the truth is investing in sustainability can improve your bottom line. Australia’s SMBs make up more than 98% of all businesses and contribute more than $506 billion to the economy. However, 43% of small businesses are running at a loss, and an estimated 48% of new businesses are failing within the first four years.
With these numbers in mind, it’s no surprise that many SMBs do not have the resources to make climate action part of their day-to-day. However, the truth is that SMB’s can play a vital role in the fight against climate change, and better yet, improve their bottom line by taking climate action.
