London’s built environment needs to adapt to achieve the Mayor’s target of net zero carbon by 2030; how can we create, and achieve, a vision for net zero, biodiverse, liveable places and buildings that will make London a global exemplar for urban sustainability?
Before the pandemic, climate change was top of the public agenda. As the country and capital moves towards recovery, the conversation on sustainability and the climate crisis has re-emerged and momentum for change is strong.
Centre for London is hosting a roundtable discussion to investigate what a truly sustainable built environment looks like at a neighbourhood level. We will explore how London can adapt existing developments to remain resilient against the ongoing climate emergency, how it needs to build new places, and ask what kind of regulations need to be in place to tackle embodied carbon emissions.
The discussion will feed into our half-day Conference at the end of June, ahead of COP26, looking at how we bring the climate change agenda home to London.
