Siemens announces plans to support and fund small businesses to give them access to more sustainability projects.

German industrial manufacturer Siemens has announced that it is making $100 million in funding available for American small businesses to take more proactive steps to become more sustainable. 

The whole thinking about this approach is that most small business owners find it difficult to access funding for some sustainability projects that large corporations are taking full advantage of. 

The Environmental Leader has reported some details on how this program will work. 

“The program, which is being launched by Siemens Smart Infrastructure and Siemens Financial Services, will help small- and medium-sized businesses develop complete sustainability programs. Siemens will offer consulting services and finance options as well technology to help make businesses more efficient, resilient and sustainable, the company says.”

And it all comes down to having clear plans in place. Too many businesses start to invest in sustainable projects but don't see the big picture of how their organization is truly impacting the environment. 

With a company like Siemens helping out to create such plans, it should also help to make the biggest impact with the most efficient projects. It's great to see that such funding isn't just coming from governments but that large businesses are stepping up to the task as well.
