CLIMATE FESTIVAL | 25 – 26 JUNE

LAUNCH OF CASTLE BAYNARD CLIMATE ACTION PILOT

A two-day Climate Festival organised by the Fleet Street Quarter BID to coincide with the London Climate Action Week 2024 sees the launch of the Castle Baynard Climate Action Pilot.

The City of London Corporation has designated the Ward of Castle Baynard as one of five Climate Action Ward Pilots to engage businesses and residents at a hyper-local level in a range of initiatives contributing to reduced emissions and increasing climate resilience. The aim is to create a blueprint for a sustainable future in urban business districts by accelerating progress towards net zero by 2040. The pilot has 3 core objectives:

  • Enable businesses in the ward to adopt Net Zero targets with a credible pathway.
  • Inform businesses of climate risks to their buildings, occupants and operations, and assist them to mitigate these.
  • Connect businesses to finance and professional services firms with sustainable finance offers, considering transition, sustainable finance and Voluntary Carbon Markets.

 

On Tuesday 25 June and Wednesday 26 June, the Fleet Street Quarter will host a series of talks and events, including showcasing the new Green Skills Hub on New Bridge Street, which also opens its doors for business next month.
