Sintali announced today that it has joined the SME Climate Hub, a new ground-breaking one-stop-shop climate action platform for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to curb carbon emissions, build business resilience and take climate leadership. Sintali has pledged to halve its carbon emissions by 2030, achieve net-zero emissions before 2050 and to regularly report on progress towards these aims.
“Our motto at Sintali is do good and be good,” says Tom Saunders, managing director of Sintali. “That means ensuring that we are doing our bit as a company, as well as helping others. As a company, we are focused on helping organisations quantify the impact of their buildings and verify their progress towards zero carbon. With this commitment today, we are keeping ourselves accountable and making sure we walk the walk by ensuring that our own operations do not contribute to the climate crisis.”
One of the most pressing existential threats to SMEs is climate emergency. It has the potential to slow economic growth by causing material damage; limiting resource availability; causing shifts in demand; leading to business interruptions and production disruptions; causing supply chain interference; and forcing business closures.
The SME Climate Hub was launched at the start of the UN General Assembly Week and New York Climate Week by the High-Level Climate Action Champion for the United Kingdom, Nigel Topping and has received initial financial support from Amazon and Verizon, through their partnership with the We Mean Business coalition. The SME Climate Hub provides SMEs with a range of accessible tools and resources to help them reduce emissions and build business resilience.
Over the next year, Sintali will publish its plan to reduce its footprint and will begin regularly reporting on progress.
Sintali is an independent company that quantifies and verifies the environmental impact of decisions, and helps organisations map out the road to net zero. With deep expertise in the development of green building standards and corporate sustainability, Sintali brings transparency and rigor to the sustainability realm.
