1. Welcome

Welcome to the Small Business Britain Sustainable Business Insights Survey with Oxford Brookes Business School 2022!

Small Business Britain and Oxford Brookes Business School are surveying small businesses in 2022 to understand how they are planning for sustainability, what support they may need, and their engagement with initiatives such as Net Zero. Thank you for taking part in this research!

Your participation is voluntary and you can withdraw from the survey at any point. Many questions are not mandatory and you can leave the survey at any time. All responses are treated as anonymous.

As a thanks for taking part in this survey, you have the option to be in with a chance of winning £250 of fantastic chocolate from Fifth Dimension Chocolates. You can add your email at the end of the survey if you would like to be included. This information will not be used for any other purpose. 

There are no costs to you from participation, other than your time. The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete.

All data collected will be analysed and shared anonymously. Small Business Britain will be the data controller for the project and Oxford Brookes Business School will be the data processor. Data files will be password encrypted, securely stored and never used on a shared computer.

This study has been approved by Oxford Brookes University Research Ethics Committee (UREC ref: L21262). If you have any concerns about the conduct of the study you may contact the Chair of the Oxford Brookes University Research Ethics Committee ethics@brookes.ac.uk. Your answers will be kept confidential.

A final report showcasing aggregated data will be available on the Small Business Britain website and via the webpage for the Oxford Regions, Innovation and Enterprise Lab (ORIEL).
