The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) London is hosting a series of four lectures on London 2050: Engineering the Future at One Great George Street, supported by the Mayor of London, covering the transport, water, energy, waste and resource management sectors in relation to the launch of the London Infrastructure Plan 2050.

City Hall has set out its ambition to significantly reduce the amount of waste being created in London. London must move towards a system where materials are reused, remanufactured or recycled rather than thrown away. What actions, incentives and facilities will be required to realise this ambition?

The Infrastructure Plan 2050 was launched after a three month consultation by the Mayor of London and is the first attempt to set out the full range of infrastructure requirements for the capital over the next 35 years, during which time the population of London is forecast to increase by 37 per cent to more than 11 million people.

This lecture will be presented in association with Cory Environmental.


The event will begin with a presentation from Andy Richmond from the Greater London Authority on the 2050 London Infrastructure Plan. Following the presentation, Jim Brennan from the West London Waste Authority will lead a panel discussion.

Chair: Jim Brennan, Director, West London Waste Authority
