Building a carbon neutral London – an architects’ response

Wednesday 7 March 2018


EcoBuild, ExCeL London, Royal Victoria Dock, 1 Western Gateway, London E16 1XL

The Mayor of London has set his ambitions to make London carbon neutral by 2050. What is the role of architects and those who design London in achieving carbon emissions targets? In the past 30 years the recognition of environmental challenges and, more recently, of climate change have become widely recognized, and new frameworks and policies have been put in place to address these issues. What have we been able to achieve so far, and how far do we still need to go?

In this talk, we will reflect on what crucial steps still need to be made and we will learn about inspiring projects that are supporting the view of a more sustainable future.

London’s air pollution – ideas for a healthier and greener city


London has the worst air pollution of the whole UK, and recent reports suggest that almost 7.9 million Londoners live in areas that exceed the limit by 50% or more. The average annual levels of PM2.5 in central London are almost double the guideline limits, putting the health of many Londoners at serious risks.
