Business growth to be boosted through climate change advice

Date Added: 29/03/2011  

The government has announced that it is to give out new advice on climate change to boost the growth of small businesses.

Lord Henley, the environment minister, pointed out that climate change is going to have an impact on all companies in the UK.

"Smart businesses that take action now to limit the risks and identify the opportunities climate change could bring will steal a march on their rivals," he said.

The environment minister added that newly-launched online facility the Climate Resilience Toolkit will allow bosses to explore the possibilities for growth which will be brought as a result of the onset of climate change.

Lord Henley pointed out that companies are reducing their carbon emissions but are not currently examining how to take advantage of the impact climate change will have on the world.

Chancellor George Osborne recently unveiled a raft of measures designed to boost small business growth in his Budget, such as cutting corporation tax from 28 per cent to 26 per cent.
