Small businesses flock to join Prince's Mayday sustainability network

The number of businesses signed up to the Prince of Wales' Mayday Network has almost doubled over the past year, defying fears that the economic downturn would dilute corporate interest in environmental sustainability. has learnt that the number of businesses in the network has increased by 87 per cent over the past 12 months to over 2,850 firms, cementing the initiative's position as the UK's largest group of businesses committed to taking action on climate change.

Lauren Sandler, marketing manager at the network, said that while the group had been founded in 2007 with support from a host of large corporates such as Marks & Spencer, Lloyds Banking Group and EDF Energy, the recent expansion had been driven by the addition of hundreds of small and micro-sized businesses to the network.
