Environment, Sustainability and Green Growth

LCCI is committed to supporting members of all sizes reduce their carbon emissions and protect the planet. We are providing a wide range of initiatives to help businesses on the road to net zero.

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 act now to reduce their carbon emissions accordingly.

On this hub you will find useful resources and tools to help you understand the requirements and become greener. We will also share upcoming events, our dedicated Committee’s programme of work and consultations.
