SMEs call for green tax credits

Government should create a green tax credits policy, say SMEs

UK business owners are calling on stronger government incentives to go green,
including the introduction of tax credits.

Of 600 SMEs interviewed by Tenon Forum, most are encouraging some form of
environmentally-friendly behaviour among their staff,
including paper recycling and car sharing. However, 48% believe the government
is not doing enough to encourage more environmentally-friendly policies.

Tenon CEO Andy Raynor said: ‘UK entrepreneurs are sending out a clear message
to government. While most support implementing policies that reduce their
environmental impact, they also cannot do so alone. SMEs need government to
motivate and reward best environmental practices with tax credits so that green
behaviour also makes a genuine difference to their bottom line.’
