What is LEDNet?
The London Environment Directors' Network (LEDNet) is the membership association for London’s Environment Directors, with representation from the GLA and London Councils. There are currently 29 boroughs who are members of LEDNet.
What does LEDNet do?
LEDNet meets quarterly to provide a forum for Environment Directors to share learning and best practice and develop thinking on emerging policy. It is a forum for mutual support and collaboration between directors which contributes to London’s joint working. Priority topics for LEDNet are air quality, income generation and efficiencies, circular economy, digital and public realm cleanliness.
LEDNet is represented on the following pan London boards:
- RE:NEW – retrofitting project across London
- Resource Partnership Board – working to increase the recycling rate in London
- Go Ultra Low City Scheme Steering Group - enabling uptake of low emission vehicles
LEDNet collaborates with the Association of Directors of Environment, Planning and Transport on common issues.
