North Yorkshire distillery continues sustainability commitment by joining SME Climate Hub

Ellers Farm Distillery, located in North Yorkshire, has joined hundreds of UK businesses by committing to the SME Climate Hub pledge to cut carbon emissions in half before 2030 and race to net-zero emissions before 2050.

The commitment comes in line with the distillery’s ambitions to achieve B-Corp certification as quickly as possible, with a vision of balancing people, planet, and profit in business to drive sustainability within the drinks industry.

Taking positive action against climate change is rapidly becoming an essential requirement for businesses of all sizes to thrive in a constantly evolving environment. With the clock ticking, the onus is on small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to consider their environmental impact just as much as larger corporations.

Moreover, smaller enterprises are finding that taking sustainability seriously is allowing them to keep pace with much larger corporations and establish a competitive edge, providing them with an excellent opportunity to set new norms for how business should be practiced in modern times.

The SME Climate Hub was established as an initiative to help streamline the path for SMEs to become net-zero businesses.

Speaking of the commitment, Ellers Farm’s Head of Sustainability, Tabatha Hurst, said: “We believe that all businesses, no matter how big or small, have their part to play in combating the climate crisis. It’s only through collective action that we can make real change, which is why we’re so proud to sign up to the SME Climate Commitment.

“We hope that as a start-up business, this is seen as our first signal that we are starting as we mean to go on. We look forward to learning from and supporting other businesses within this community.”
