Large companies, equipped with the resources and teams necessary to adhere to global ESG standards, strive to meet regulatory requirements and demonstrate responsible business practices.
However, a significant gap exists in the SME market.
Hundreds of millions of smaller enterprises lack the necessary tools, systems, and expertise to effectively engage with these larger organisations, limiting their ability to contribute to a sustainable future and capitalise on emerging opportunities.
Furthermore, in the absence of regulatory compliance, smaller organisations lack the incentive to operate more sustainably.
This, in turn, leads to diminished trust from customers, investors, and team members, who increasingly demand transparency and accountability in environmental, social, and governance matters.
