A free online tool to build an effective sustainability strategy for your business

Small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) make up 99% of the UK business community and play a vital role in our transition to net zero, collectively accounting for 50% of CO₂ emissions. For most SMEs, building an effective sustainability strategy is low on the list of priorities and often seems unobtainable – expensive, time consuming and difficult to know where to begin.

We’ve created The NetZeroToolkit to change this. It is a science-based, impartial and jargon-free resource that assumes no prior knowledge, breaking sustainability down into eight core components relevant to any business. Within each component you’ll find question prompts, detailed guidance notes and a carefully curated set of resources that will help to build an effective sustainability strategy.

Since launching in 2021, over 670 business have signed up to The NetZeroToolkit to keep track of their actions and it’s helped thousands more who visit to use the resources within it.
