You might be wondering what role you and your small business play in the bigger picture. The global climate change crisis, that is. If you are, you might be stressing about how your very seemingly small footprint can make a big difference. Guess what? It can. When every single small business owner makes a commitment to practice greater sustainability, a positive ripple effect ensues. In fact, it is never too late to start – because of Mission 2020 . . . #2020DontBeLate.
The United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Summit was held in September 2019. During said meeting, countries were asked to “step up” with some ambitious goals for 2020 to reduce greenhouse emissions. As a small business owner, it is not too late to finish the year off strong and begin 2020 with a head start on some incredible, planet-saving goals.

Clean Energy: Small Change, Big Impact
Of the 17 ambitious but possible sustainable development goals (SDGs), number seven is the one SuperGreen Solutions can help you with right now. Amazingly, by switching to clean energy sources for your business, you are inadvertently supporting other goals. As you can imagine, your commitment to sustainable energy allows for #6, #12 and #13, which are clean water, responsible consumption, and climate action respectively.
