The Association of Sustainable Business launched in July with the aim of helping the UK’s 5.58 million businesses fight climate change with the opportunity to achieve sustainable accreditation, by making the process simple, profitable and rewarding. Businesses large and small are increasingly aware that they need to become more sustainable and reduce their emissions where possible, as the UK moves towards becoming Net Zero by 2050. The problem to date has been that the process has been complex, confusing and expensive, and has become off-putting to business owners, especially smaller SME’s.
The Association is transforming that by making it simple for any business to gain instant Green credentials through membership. They do this by plantings and preserving at least 400 trees on behalf of a member-business and offset at least 1 tonne of C02 for them in world class carbon offsetting projects, depending on the membership level the business joins at. Members receive a Carbon Reduction Plan to help them understand where their business emissions come from, with lots of simple ways to reduce emissions whilst saving money.
The Association offers Membership, Education and Accreditation opportunities including helping companies become Certified Green, Carbon Neutral or Climate Positive. Members also gain use of the Association’s logos to help them promote their Green credentials. Visit www.AOSB.org
