About Us

Green Small Business exists to make a difference in the way business is conducted.

So many business leaders recognise the local and global environmental challenges we face and want to play their part in addressing them.

We are here to support them in taking authentic climate action.

The problem

Many of the tools to help businesses take action on their environmental impacts are onerous, expensive and outdated.

Others are overly simplistic, do not drive the business change that is needed and generate reputational risk for the businesses that use them.

Our vision

To drive authentic climate action through providing practical and impactful environmental support to businesses of all sizes, everywhere.

Our values

  • We believe in business. We believe that business can play a critical role in addressing the environmental challenges we face. And we believe that doing so is great for business.
  • We recognize that every business is different. We tailor our services, solutions and expectations to each individual business.
  • We love technology and its role in enhancing our client experiences but it is never a substitute for real-person support.
  • We think greenwash is dangerous. Dangerous for the environment and dangerous for business. We help our clients to avoid it all costs.
