Upcoming Events

  • How Green are we?

  • Wednesday 19 November 2014, 8:00-09.30,
  •  
  •  
  • Speechly Bircham, 6 New Street Square, London EC4A 3LX

  •  
  • Midtown is regenerating. Our ever-improving public transport network will place us as 'the most accessible city centre in Europe'.  Large scale redevelopments have continued through the recession. Europe's largest array of solar panels tops the new Blackfriars Station. With so much going on, is Midtown contributing to London's Green agenda or hampering it?

     

    This panel, kindly hosted and led by Speechly Bircham, will be a timely check on progress.  We will set-out the Green goals London and the UK has set.  We will celebrate best practice carbon reduction schemes from elsewhere in London and gain insight from Member businesses with specialist knowledge, identifying potential issues that Members can help overcome and opportunities we can benefit from along the way.

     

    We will also be announcing how eligible Members can structure their contribution to London's Green agenda through a new partnership with the Heart of the City Programme.
