The FNZ Standard can give businesses a real competitive advantage, especially during difficult economic times.
That’s the suggestion from James Staniforth, Founder & Director at Sustainable Business Services, who spoke to us about the future Net Zero Standard with CBN Expert.
He acknowledged that while it can often prove difficult for businesses to find a suitable carbon accounting system and implement new business models, the Standard makes it easy for companies to take their first step in developing a net zero strategy, drive change and secure long-term value.
He noted that the tool would prove particularly useful for SMEs and mid-market firms, who may not have the time or money to spend on complicated and expensive carbon accounting processes.
He said: “There is a climate emergency, we’re passionate about the environment and business, and believe that collectively, business can make the biggest difference in supporting the government’s net zero ambition.
“I believe the Standard is a perfect solution for SME businesses to get on board with that.”
