Small businesses are being championed for taking the most innovative actions to go green and become a net zero business by 2050, as part of the UK Government’s Together for our Planet campaign.

More than 160 businesses from over the UK entered the competition, making a public commitment on the UK Business Climate Hub. Businesses could enter in two categories – micro and small. The best entries were judged by a panel of experts including the government’s Net Zero Champion Andrew Griffith.

One of the finalists in the small business category is Cambridge plant-based restaurant chain Stem & Glory. They were praised for their innovative and green mindset about how they source, use, and cook ingredients, and the judges were also impressed with their ambition to share their green learnings with restaurants everywhere.

On 2 November, the top five finalists in each category attended a special awards ceremony hosted by Intuit at the COP26 international climate change summit in Glasgow, with two winners securing an exclusive prize package worth over £4,500 from competition partners BT, NatWest and SSE.
