The City of London must play its part in reducing carbon emissions. This will help meet the Paris Agreement target of keeping a global temperature rise this century below 2 degrees Celsius.
Call for evidence
Has your business cut its carbon emissions? Please tell us about it at email@example.com. Businesses are responsible for 95% of the City's carbon emissions. Reducing emissions makes sense, and cuts energy bills too.
Energy efficiency is the first step in reducing emissions. Commercial buildings in the City are becoming more energy efficient with new buildings using solar shading, low energy lighting and IT to help reduce carbon emissions and heat build-up, thereby reducing the need for air conditioning.
Low and zero carbon infrastructure
Many City buildings have installed photovoltaic panels which generate electricity without producing carbon emissions. Others use low carbon energy from the Citigen CHP district heating and cooling network, or using ground source heat pumps.
