Climate Change Hub

The UK economy is legally bound to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050 and reduce carbon emissions by 60% by 2035 from today’s levels. The Mayor of London has also set ambitious aims for London to be a zero-carbon city by 2030.

This means businesses and industry will have to reduce their carbon emissions accordingly.

Our Climate Change Hub shares useful resources and tools to help your business on the road to net zero.

LCCI members can learn more about the policy and regulatory changes in the Members’ Zone.

What LCCI is doing

A focussed programme of activities is being led by Members, offering opportunities to network, collaborate and share good practice to support London’s development as a centre of excellence for environment, sustainability and green growth through both a multi sector and sector specific approach.

LCCI Member Auditel, explains the ways in which they differ and why all CFRs are not created equal.
