The global technology platform has collaborated with the SME Climate Hub and UN’s Race to Zero campaign
Global business software platform Intuit is all set to help 30,000 small ventures make commitments to deliver significant climate action ahead of the COP26 Climate Summit in November. They announced it in the last week after partnering with several UK government green initiatives to offer tools, resources, and assistance for letting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) on their way to net-zero emissions.
Popularly known for its digital accounting software Quickbooks, Intuit made an announcement on Friday clearing the fact that it has joined hands with the government’s ‘#TogetherforourPlanet‘ initiative and also the SME Climate Hub, including the UN’s Race to Zero Campaign.
By utilizing its software, Intuit said SMEs would be in a position to make a “measurable, positive impact on the environment” starting with a pledge to promote sustainability by reducing their carbon footprint. They will take all the necessary steps to boost up energy efficiency. Under this initiative, they will strive to give business owners an option to sign-up for early access to Intuit’s climate-positive beta initiative and other climate-positive programs through Intuit.com by influencing SMEs to cut their emissions by 2030 and aim for net-zero by 2050.
“By embracing sustainability, small businesses will play a critical role in building a better and more climate-positive future,” said Chris Evans, vice president, and country manager UK at Intuit QuickBooks. “By providing practical guidance and resources to them, we are delighted that QuickBooks can take an active role in giving these small businesses tools to improve their climate credentials and thrive as we look to the future.”
Intuit said the announcement formed a part of its ‘Climate-Positive Commitment’, through which it is targeting to utilize its global platform to influence climate besides aiming for a global cutting of carbon emissions of two million metric tonnes by 2030, 50 times greater than its individual footprint.
Echoing Evans’s comments, Sean Kinghorn, global sustainability leader at Intuit, said: “Small businesses are at the heart of the global economy and have a clear, tangible impact on the environment. Through QuickBooks and our partnership with the SME Climate Hub, Intuit is uniquely positioned to help these businesses invest in climate-positive solutions. We’re excited to continue our efforts to participate in saving the planet while helping our customers grow their businesses.”
