Fighting Climate Change Through SMEs
At a time when the world faces an unbelievably bleak future due to the state of the earth’s climate, small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are often overlooked as part of the solution to climate change, despite having an enormous impact on their communities and local economies. Attention is primarily given to investing in climate mitigation (renewable energy) and resilient infrastructure for adaptation. What we are overlooking is that SMEs can create local solutions that drive adaptation and build resilience to climate change, becoming agents of climate resilience themselves, if given the right tools and investment, which they currently do not have.
