24 November 2021

Currently, 2446 UK SMEs have made the SME Climate Commitment (including 14 in overseas territories, and 26 awaiting approval).

The UK has the largest number of companies signed-up. The total constitutes just under 80% of global SME Climate Commitments.

Since May 2021 when the UK Business Climate Hub was launched, an average of 65 businesses per week have made the commitment. This number has accelerated to an average of 95 per week over November.

UK commitments span every devolved nation and region in the country, and 26 different sectors.
