Tackling carbon emissions from commercial buildings in Westminster

The council has pledged to work with businesses, residents, policy makers and communities to tackle climate change and achieve net zero carbon emissions across the city by 2040. Westminster City Council are pleased to invite you to take part in a series of business workshops to help shape a Climate Emergency action plan for Westminster setting out the city’s pathway to achieving the ambitious target.

Buildings are the largest emission source in Westminster with commercial and institutional buildings accounting for 71% of carbon emissions. During the session, Westminster City Council will discuss opportunities to improve energy efficiency through retrofit and reducing energy use.

The sessions will begin with a summary of the emission source and an overview of common barriers and opportunities. This will be followed by breakout sessions to discuss key challenges and local opportunities.
