Small businesses can save the planet
Small businesses are vital to the global economy. They make up 95% of the world's private enterprises, and employ 60% of the global workforce. If we're to build a greener, fairer future, we can't do it without small businesses!
But too often governments and regulators concentrate on the big players, leaving small and medium businesses in the dark when it comes to the benefits of sustainability and green growth.
That's why we're asking people to sign the Santa Cruz Declaration on Local Green Enterprise - calling on governments to recognise small business as vital to the social and environmental transformation the planet desperately needs.
