London has the ability to lead the world on net zero carbon buildings if it follows key recommendations set out in a new report by the London Energy Transformation Initiative (LETI), a coalition of expert organisations which includes Elementa Consulting (the UK arm of Integral Group) and the UK Green Building Council.
In Getting to Zero, published yesterday during World Green Building Week, LETI sets out four key proposals which will help all new buildings in London to operate at net zero carbon by 2030 and all existing buildings in the capital by 2050 – targets which are in line with those set out in WorldGBC’s Advancing Net Zero project.
The proposals – developed by industry over the last six months and facilitated by Elementa Consulting – focus on:
Kevin Hydes, CEO of Elementa Consulting, said:
“This report gives clear directions, simple actions and lays out a roadmap to a net zero future for London. I for one am excited about how London will use these concise proposals and embed them into upcoming plans to maximise its potential. London has the opportunity to lead once again, we must do all we can to ensure it will succeed.”
LETI has presented the proposals to the Greater London Authority.
Integral Group is a sponsor of the Advancing Net Zero project.
