SME Climate Hub

The SME Climate Hub is a global initiative that empowers small to medium sized companies to take climate action and build resilient businesses for the future. 

The Hub is an initiative of the We Mean Business Coalition, the Exponential Roadmap Initiative and the United Nations Race to Zero campaign in collaboration with Normative and the Net Zero team at Oxford University 

About the SME Climate Commitment

The SME Climate Commitment is one of the three pillars of the SME Climate Hub and provides SMEs - no 1 matter their sector or geography - with the opportunity to make an internationally recognised climate commitment which is aligned with the latest climate science. SMEs that make the SME Climate Commitment will be recognised by the United Nations Race to Zero campaign and join a wide range of governments, businesses, cities, regions, and universities around the world that are committed to achieving net zero carbon emissions. 

SME business leaders that make the SME Climate Commitment agree to start taking action  immediately toward three core aims:  

  • halving emissions before 2030,
  • achieving net zero emissions before 2050 and
  • disclosing progress every year.

These are intended to be the minimum level of commitment and action – we of course encourage your business to go as far as you can, as fast as you can.
