Building a resilient and zero-carbon London
With COP26 in Glasgow at the end of 2021, the need for immediate action has never been more obvious. Many are seeing now as the time for a drastic change to bring us towards a low carbon future for London and the rest of the UK.
London has committed to become carbon neutral by 2030, aiming for all new buildings to be net zero carbon by 2030 and all existing ones by 2050. The NLA Zero Carbon London report, published in November 2020, and the Resilient Cities report, published in October 2021, both provide a clear set of priorities for the capital to achieve these targets. Solutions range from a focus on retrofit, the adoption of circular economy principles, decarbonising the grid, reducing embodied carbon in buildings, bringing down operational carbon to net zero, and increasing green infrastructure.
The NLA Net Zero year-round programme addresses these priorities by bringing together built environment professionals and decision makers to share best practice and accelerate the adoption of climate solutions to help create a greener, zero-carbon London.
