Keeping London at the forefront of global business
working with and for the whole UK
The road to COP 26 - Unlocking green growth for London
14 September 2021
There has been a lot of focus on carbon reduction, but less on the growth and jobs opportunities from doubling the size of the green economy by the Mayor’s stated target of 2030. London has a strong track record on decarbonisation as a C40 city – with CO2 emissions down 40% in 2017 vs. 2000 – but has a long way to go to achieve net zero (or intermediary targets). At the same time the capital has many distinctive competitive advantages that could lend it to being a first mover both in the UK, and globally.
