In June 2019, the UK passed legislation to bring all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050. In parallel, 21 of the 33 London boroughs have declared a climate emergency. Meeting the climate challenge will require innovation and collaboration between the public and private sector.
London First is responding by convening business, experts, and the public sector to consider the UK’s Net Zero Carbon goals within a London context. Our programme of events, blogs and thought leadership aims to help business better understand the priorities, barriers, and opportunities for the capital, as well as to provide an opportunity to share experiences and best practice.
We will be ready to respond, shape, and promote business-friendly solutions with a London focus as the Government brings forward a policy or regulatory framework.
