Net Zero Heroes - Small business, big impact

It’s an uncertain time to be a business. But beyond the immediate challenges posed by the pandemic and Brexit is a longer-term, and some might say more pressing challenge – climate change.

COP26 may feel like a distant memory but its mission is far from complete. And while the climate emergency may feel like the concern of big business, it must be high on the agenda for small businesses too. According to a report from the British Business Bank, small businesses account for 43-53% of the UK’s business greenhouse gas emissions. Everyone has a part to play – but how?

Lemon Quarters in collaboration with the British Business Bank showcase the journeys of some small business leaders who are proving that you don’t have to be big to make a large impact.

In this podcast series we explore the ways all businesses can make a difference, from first steps to giant leaps, as well as gain the opportunities to grow your business.

Speakers include Shanika Amarasekara, Chief Impact Officer, British Business Bank, Laura Crawford, CEO & Sales Director, Mama Bamboo, Gareth Dinnage, MD of Seacourt Ltd and Holly Boxall, Co-Founder,
