BusinessLDN welcomes the opportunity to provide written evidence to the London Assembly Environment Committee to inform its discussion with invited stakeholders at its meeting on 18 October 2023.

The Mayor of London has set a target for London to be net-zero-carbon by 2030, putting London at the forefront of global cities and UK action on climate change. This transition to a greener economy will have major implications for the labour market and skills system. Equipping people with green skills at all levels across the capital’s sectors will be vital to achieving this and transitioning to a sustainable society more broadly.
