Businesses in the capital are already playing a significant role in responding to the climate challenge, by developing individual action plans, but our collective ambitions should be far higher. The race to net zero should not be just viewed through an environmental lens, but an economic one too. Seizing the green growth opportunity in London will contribute to the capital’s decarbonisation and create jobs, while helping retain London’s status as a global business hub.

The time for action and implementation is now.”
