Only 23% of businesses questioned had taken any practical measures to limit their environmental impact and just 24% had an environmental policy in place. When asked to name any environmental legislation affecting their business, only 18% could do so unprompted.
The SME-nvironment 2003 survey of more than 8,000 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) across a range of industries was commissioned for the NetRegs website - www.netregs.gov.uk - which was developed by the UK’s environmental regulators to help small businesses understand their green obligations.
