Getting to Zero – World Green Building Week #OurHeroIsZero

In order to mitigate against catastrophic climate change, carbon emissions from buildings need to be radically reduced. As construction industry professionals in London, we have a collective responsibility to contribute our expertise and engage in a process that puts London on the path to meeting these goals. To that end the London Energy Transformation Initiative (LETI) has been established to work collaboratively towards solutions that can enable a zero emissions future for London.

LETI formed following the successful ‘Fix London’s Broken Energy Policy’ workshop in May, that brought together over 100 diverse construction industry professionals to develop collaborative policy recommendations for a zero emissions London.

The ‘Getting to Zero’ report was published and submitted to the Mayor and the GLA, it draws together the recommendations suggested at the workshop. Four LETI working groups have formed, focusing on the key priorities that emerged in the workshop. These working groups will translate ideas from the workshop into tangible evidence based recommendations for energy policy.

1- Data Disclosure – Leader-Adam Mactavish – Currie & Brown

2- Better Performance Metrics – Leader- Thomas Lefevre – Etude

3- Decarbonising Heating and Energy- Leader-Amanda Stevenson – Capital and Counties
