SME feedback sought on carbon emissions reduction support

Graphic of a woman and man at a computer with accompanying text reading 'SME carbon emissions reduction survey. Learn more.'Small and medium businesses (SMEs) can have their say on support they require to reduce carbon emissions.

The Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation (JTSI) is conducting a survey to investigate ways to effectively assist local SMEs to thrive in the rapidly evolving climate action landscape.

With growing climate action commitments across public and private sectors, the State Government recognises an increasing pressure for SMEs to report and reduce carbon emissions.

Take the survey

The survey takes about 12 minutes to complete and closes on Wednesday, June 26.

CCIWA’s Climate Change Position Statement says there is widespread consensus among WA businesses that action to “mitigate and adapt to climate change is the only path forward — customers and the investment community expect nothing less”.

However, CCIWA has found that businesses are not well prepared to adapt to the risks that climate change poses to their assets and operations.

“Some of these effects will be felt regardless of how much global emissions are reduced, being due to the stock of emissions already in the atmosphere,” the statement says.

CCIWA encourages businesses to share their feedback with the State Government via the survey.

Questions about the survey can be directed to [email protected].
