How Europe’s Small Businesses Are Fighting Climate Change

BLOOMBERG: Small businesses are facing a tough choice in the midst of the worst economic crisis in over a century—radically cut greenhouse gas emissions or risk losing their largest clients.

Industry giants including Apple Inc., Microsoft Corp. and Unilever NV have pledged to reduce carbon emissions along their supply chains, which are made up of the kinds of small and medium enterprises that account for over 90% of companies in Europe and employ nearly half of all workers. These firms often don’t have the resources to develop sophisticated climate plans but now,  slowly, organizations are stepping in to help.
