Small to medium sized enterprises account for 90% of business worldwide and affect the livelihoods of over 2 billion people. However, in the global effort to mitigate climate change, large businesses and governments have largely been the focus of the discussion. The SME Climate Hub aims to bring all businesses on board to net zero.
The SME Climate Hub mobilizes and supports small and medium sized businesses to commit to cut carbon emissions in half by 2030 and reach net zero emissions before 2050 — a milestone aimed at avoiding the worst effects of climate change while ensuring business viability.
William Hall & Co acknowledges it’s responsibility towards wider society and as a firm we have signed the SME Climate Hub’s Climate Commitment.
This means that as a business we recognise that climate change poses a threat to the economy, nature and society-at-large and have committed to take action immediately in order to achieve net zero emissions before 2030. This will mean that activities from our business will have no impact on the climate from greenhouse gas emissions.

In doing this, we are proud to be recognised by the United Nations Race to Zero campaign, and join governments, businesses, cities, regions, and universities around the world that share the same mission.
We have selected the earliest possible date of commitment by pledging to achieve net zero emissions by 2030, the latest possible being 2050. We have done this because we believe we can realistically achieve this in an 8 year time frame (if not a lot sooner!) and it is our responsibility to make change as rapidly as possible.
