Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) offering office-based roles such as accountancy jobs in the City of London are struggling in their efforts to become more eco-friendly.
That is the opinion of professor Ross King, joint programme director of the Centre for Sustainable Environmental Management - Brunel Management Programme (CSEM - BMP), who said that many companies are finding it tough to readjust to becoming green as they seek to reduce their costs in the wake of the economic downturn.
Recent research by the Cambridge Network showed that a large proportion of private sector firms participating in the government's Energy Efficiency Scheme are lagging behind their counterparts in the public arena when it comes to commitment to environmentally-friendly policies.
However, professor King disagreed with these findings and stated it "depends on the scale of the organisations you're dealing with", rather than whether a firm is in the public or private sector.
