The cost of living crisis is being driven by rising energy costs and inflation. This webinar will help you to understand how to advise your small business clients on their energy and fuel use, reducing consumption in their buildings & operations and what finance is available. We will also look at sustainability goals and how this can help your clients to save costs and futureproof access to finance.
Energy bills are expected to remain high for some, with new regulations requiring large companies and lenders to disclose their emissions – this will have a knock on effect for SMEs who must be ready to disclose emissions or risk losing access to finance. Our speaker will talk you through what tools are in the market that can help you to help your clients.
