Our #YesBusinessCan reduce carbon campaign is about celebrating the small and the big changes UK businesses are making to help build a low carbon economy.

Starting out small – Has your business recently cut business travel by holding virtual business meetings? Or installed bike racks to encourage cycling to work? Small, simple ideas can make a difference.

Or going big – Has your business implemented a supplier review? Or measured your carbon output and set reduction goals?

From the small to the big, we want you to share your stories to show that #YesBusinessCan reduce carbon. We’ll promote the 10 best ideas in a paid social media campaign on Twitter, to encourage other businesses to join the movement.

How to share

  1. Follow LloydsBankBiz from your business handle
  2. Tweet @LloydsBankBiz a picture or video (max 1 min) from your business handle showing how your business has reduced its carbon footprint.

Together, #YesBusinessCan reduce carbon.
