How to prepare for funding conversations

The SME Climate Hub suggests ways to prepare to speak with sources of financial support about decarbonisation. You do not need to take all these steps beforehand; many organisations – including your bank and buyers – may be able to assist you.

Key steps include:

  1. Calculate & report your greenhouse gas footprint
  2. Understand the relevance of climate change to your business
  3. Check climate commitments of your buyers and suppliers
  4. Design an action plan to decarbonise
  5. Prepare the narrative for your business and stakeholders
