How is London addressing the climate emergency? Is the capital on track to meet its zero carbon targets and what are the key barriers and priorities to get there?
The Zero Carbon London report examines how London is getting ready to become a zero-carbon city, analysing current policies from both city and local governments and reviewing how the private sector is addressing the challenge by setting ambitious standards and developing new industry frameworks. It presents initiatives and approaches being developed by key industry leaders includes a project showcase of over 80 London schemes and provides a snapshot of where London is in the race to net zero.
The report includes case studies of two of our London schemes, Tower Bridge Court and Paradise.
Tower Bridge Court is a 110,000 sq ft forward-thinking work environment on the bank of the Thames next to Tower Bridge. FORE Partnership is transforming the existing 1990s office building through a deep refurbishment into one of the UK’s most sustainable and healthy workspaces, designed in collaboration with Stiff + Trevillion, FORE is targeting BREEAM Outstanding, EPC A and WELL Platinum for the building, the building will be 100 per cent electric and zero carbon in operation.
Paradise is the net zero carbon work and maker space, designed in conjunction with Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios for Bywater Properties which will transform a neglected site in Vauxhall, London, with a timber-framed building that is on target for almost 60 years of a negative carbon footprint.
Unveiling the results of a survey of over 170 built environment professionals, this report brings to light the key challenges the sector is facing to bring down carbon emissions while assessing where London is on the roadmaps to net zero.
