The Green Party supports Small Business Saturday

This Saturday (2nd December) is Small Business Saturday!

Small Business Saturday UK is a grassroots, non-commercial campaign, which highlights small business success and encourages consumers to ‘shop local’ and support small businesses in their communities.

This year the Green Party of England and Wales is calling for:

  • Green grants: an extra £3 billion to help small businesses go greener
  • A fair transition: help for small business to cut their transport emissions
  • Employee wellbeing: measures including zero business rates for childcare providers
  • Reform of VAT: to give small businesses a boost vs larger corporations
  • Suspension of Covid repayments: to take the pressure of small businesses

Small businesses make a vital contribution to the prosperity and sustainability of our local communities and the Green Party is proud to back them.
