Team London Bridge (TLB) is a Business Improvement District covering an area that contains more than 50,000 workers across over 350 businesses, including the UK’s 4th busiest railway station, making it one the most important business centres in the UK. Following the London Borough of Southwark’s announcement of their goal to becoming carbon neutral by 2030, Useful Projects and xtonnes were commissioned by TLB to develop a Decarbonisation Routemap for London Bridge to support their ambition of making it one of the most sustainable areas in the world for business and tourism.
This follows previous work we carried out for TLB, designing and facilitating stakeholder engagement workshops on sustainability and how to respond to the climate emergency.
As part of this process, xtonnes has measured the area’s carbon footprint using their carbon footprinting software to help assess where the biggest emissions come from. The analysis of this enabled us to identify emission hotspots across sectors and activities, allowing us to promote targeted interventions which would have the greatest effect in reducing the area’s carbon usage.
Useful Projects is leading on the decarbonisation routemap. Based on the footprint data and engagement with key members of the London Bridge community, we are developing the actions and interventions required to be zero carbon. The final output will inform the area-wide zero-carbon initiatives lead by TLB, as well as projects to support individual businesses in their decarbonisation journeys.
