SMEs act on environment

The Age on a report on SMEs and environmental issues.

The Sensis Environment Report found that 37 per cent of SMEs surveyed were already trying to reduce their impact on the environment.

The report’s author, Christena Singh, said the main calls to action from Australians were for business to be more efficient with energy and water (14 per cent) and to recycle and manage waste better (13 per cent).

“These calls to action closely mirror changes already being made by SMEs,” she said. “The most popular change was to introduce recycling, followed by trying to reduce water and energy usage.”

The interesting aspect is the negative impact of drought in almost every state except NT. The learning: Local and current issues matter.
