Climate Change

 

Key areas of work

As we emerge from the pandemic and the UK hosts COP26 late this year, climate is central to LEDNet’s activity. LEDNet’s work on climate is heavily focusing on London’s green recovery programme, working with our members and other stakeholders to maximise impact. Through the work the cluster delivers, we aim to support London boroughs in meeting their net zero carbon emissions target and provide strategic direction on the themes from the TEC-LEDNet joint statement falling within LEDNet Directors' portfolios.

The emphasis of LEDNet’s activity on climate change for 2021/22 is to:

  • Provide strategic direction and leadership within boroughs and support coordination and best practice around climate;
  • Influence the development of national policy on climate and support advocacy of our policy positions in the run up to COP26;
  • Build on the climate capability programme delivered in 2020 to further support training and skill development within boroughs; and
  • Support strategic communications work around climate change and support community engagement practices.
