The UK Government currently defines Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in accordance with the table below.
Considering the above factors, it’s crucial that SMEs are equipped to play a role in achieving the UK’s Net Zero targets.
UK Government have set a 2050 Net Zero target and more ambitiously the Scottish Government has set legislation for Scotland to be Net Zero by 2045, providing a clear legal mandate for businesses in Scotland to start reducing emissions now, and to continue to do so as time goes forward.
