Buildings are the largest emission source in Westminster with commercial and institutional buildings accounting for 71% of carbon emissions. Westminster City Council has pledged to work with businesses, residents, policy makers and communities to tackle climate change and achieve net zero carbon emissions across the city by 2040. Take part in a series of climate change workshops to help shape a Climate Emergency action plan for Westminster, setting out the city’s pathway to achieving their ambitious target.
Hosted by Westminster City Council, the 60-minute sessions will bring businesses together to identify opportunities to reduce or eliminate carbon emissions from commercial and domestic buildings, energy supply and transport and identify opportunities to reduce waste and use green spaces for carbon offsetting.
These climate change workshops will be followed by breakout sessions to discuss key challenges and local opportunities.
