Net Zero Trajectories; Learning from London and Beyond @ UKREiiF

Cities across the UK are setting ambitious net zero emissions targets in order to mitigate climate change. Yet, the journey towards net zero is not one that any city can undertake alone. London may be at the forefront of this journey, navigating unique challenges and opportunities, but has a lot to learn from the rest of the country and progressive business practices. Collaboration and knowledge sharing between cities and between public and private sector entities are essential for accelerating progress and fostering results.
