Meta, (the new name for Facebook Company) is introducing #GreenBoost, a sustainability programme for small and medium sized businesses. Working with the SME Climate Hub and partners across Europe, Meta has created a number of trainings, workshops, best practices and resources for small businesses to bring sustainability to the core of their business.
If you’ve listened to the news over the past couple of days, you can hardly have missed the stream of world leaders and politicians asserting that climate change is the greatest threat we all and that the need to act grows more urgent every day. The science is clear and unambiguous. What’s less clear is the role that small businesses can play in tackling what feels like a daunting and immense challenge.
As a global business that connects more than 3 billion people every month, Meta have an opportunity and a responsibility to make a real difference. Working with the SME Climate Hub and partners across Europe, Meta have created a number of training programmes, workshops, best practices and resources for small businesses to bring sustainability to the core of their business.
Last year, Meta (then known as Facebook) achieved net zero emissions for their global operations, and are supported by 100% renewable energy. To achieve this they’ve reduced their greenhouse gas emissions by 94% since 2017.
Meta are today launching the #GreenBoost sustainability training program to support businesses on their apps to take climate action, reduce their carbon emissions and help grow their business in a sustainable way. They are starting this month with businesses in the UK and Spain, with a particular focus on restaurants, hospitality and food producers.
The #GreenBoost program will expand to France, Italy and other countries next year.
