Climate action strategy
The City of London Corporation is drafting an evidence-based Climate Action Strategy that will cover our own operations, those of the Square Mile and how we will adapt to climate change.
The aims are to reduce the City’s carbon emissions, to ensure we are resilient to climate change and to lead others to make similar changes.
We are aware climate change will affect everyone and understand that if we want to play our part internationally, we must play our part locally. That is why we would like to hear from you.
We welcome you to provide feedback through our survey on climate change until 31 August 2020. We greatly value and appreciate your insight.
If you represent a business within the Square Mile, we would like to know how your organisation is preparing for climate change. You can provide insight by taking our business climate change survey
