Working Groups

Environment, Sustainability and Green Growth

This Committee focuses on the need for a centre of excellence to support LCCI Members in their pursuit of an environment, sustainability, and green growth agenda through both a multi sector and sector specific approach. The work includes a focused programme of activities led by members which offers opportunities to network, collaborate and share good practice. It will also work to identify challenges and barriers to success, including those particular to London and to highlight the needs and views of London businesses on these issues.
