Sustainability & climate change

West London Business believes that tackling air quality and finding new models of sustainable consumption and production through models such as The Circular Economy will be vital to the future of the sub-region’s economy.  This may be enabled through research and development into smart cities, along with many other areas of research and action.

Sustainability & Climate Change Policy Commission

Expanding industries risk expanding environmental impacts. In order to ensure a green future for West London, it is vital for businesses to continuously reduce their carbon footprint. The commission, launched in late February 2016, explored the potential for West London to establish itself as a leader in smart city technologies and circular economy innovations.

The Commission published its draft report in early March 2017 and final report “Green City in the West: Leading the transition” in August 2018.

Founding sponsor of this policy commission is Heathrow.
