CoreBlue joins SME Climate Hub and commits to halve greenhouse gas emissions before 2030 towards net zero before 2050.

CoreBlue announced today that they have become one of the first companies to join the SME Climate Hub, a new groundbreaking one-stop-shop climate action platform for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to curb carbon emissions, build business resilience and take climate leadership.

The SME Climate Hub is co-hosted by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the Exponential Roadmap Initiative, the We Mean Business coalition and the United Nations Race to Zero campaign, and has received support from several supply chain leaders, including BT Group, Ericsson, IKEA, Telia and Unilever, as well as funding support from Amazon and Verizon.

World leading technical experts in custom software CoreBlue has become one of the first signatories to the UN-recognized “SME Climate Commitment”, which forms part of the SME Climate Hub.

In making this commitment, the team at CoreBlue has pledged to halve its carbon emissions by 2030, achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 and to regularly report on progress towards these aims.

The company's reasoning behind joining the initiative was simple, CEO Lewis Boyles-White said, "If all SMEs stood back and waited for the big corporations to fix our climate crisis, we'd be doing this planet a massive disfavour. We believe every organisation, no matter how big or small can take action against climate change and we are no exception. We see this as one of the first of many steps we'll take to support the fight against climate change. Not only are we very proud to be one of the first signatories to take part in this, but look forward to working with the SME Climate Hub and other fellow signatories to improve our climate performance."

The SME Climate Hub will provide SMEs like CoreBlue with a range of accessible tools and resources to help them reduce emissions and build business resilience. The platform will couple these tailored resources with opportunities for businesses to unlock direct commercial incentives and more.
