Overview

Over the next 4 years, one of the mayor of London’s biggest challenges will be to drive deep and rapid reductions to the capital’s carbon emissions. Decarbonising the city’s built environment is a big part of this task.

ICE London have brought to together experts from across London’s infrastructure sector to look at the bottlenecks in the system that are holding back progress.

The “State of the City – London” report explores these bottlenecks and identifies some key recommendations for where the next mayor of London needs to focus to accelerate the decarbonisation of London’s build environment – focusing on transport and affordable housing.

This event is for all those interested in helping shape London to be a Net Zero City.
