Lead as an SME Climate Champion in India

MSMEs in India drive economic growth, and are pivotal players in reaching the nation’s goal of net-zero emissions by 2070. No matter the size, small businesses have the power to make a difference and be the agents of change India needs.

The SME Climate Hub provides access to free tools, guides and courses specifically designed for very small to medium-sized enterprises to measure their emissions, reduce their footprint and thrive sustainably amidst evolving demands.

What is net zero?

Net zero means achieving a balance between the amount of greenhouse gas emitted and removed from the atmosphere. This is critical to fight climate change. Net zero can be reached by reducing carbon emissions as much as possible, and taking steps to offset or counteract the emissions that cannot be reduced.

What happens when you make the SME Climate Commitment?

Businesses that make the commitment join thousands of like-minded companies around the world and are counted in the United Nations’ Race to Zero campaign.
