SME Climate Hub

         • As an SME Climate Hub, Impactful Governance has made a commitment to be net-zero by 2030.

         • By drastically reducing our carbon emissions and making plans to offset our carbon emissions, we hope to lower our environmental footprint.


What does Net-Zero mean?

         • Net-Zero means that you are not putting more carbon into the atmosphere than you are taking out of it.

         • CO2 emissions is one of the biggest causes of climate change, by taking this step towards net-zero you ensure that your organisation is not actively contributing to the climate crisis.


How can Net-Zero be achieved?

         • You need to account of any possible sources of carbon emissions and create a sustainability plan.

         • Impactful Governance has put together a resource you can use called the Eco Office Audit which will guide you as you make these steps.
