About this Event

Join us at the Fleet Street Quarter’s first Climate Festival during London Climate Action Week #LCAW2024. Comprising a series of high-level debates and networking, the two-day Festival’s overarching theme is, creating a blueprint for a more sustainable future.

Through the Festival, Fleet Street Quarter, the Business Improvement District for the City of London’s Fleet Street area, aims to help businesses in the area and beyond accelerate their efforts to transition to net zero.

This panel discussion and Q&A will take place on day 1 of the Festival.

Can London Still Be a Centre for the Net Zero Global Economy?

Our expert panellists will explore what London needs to do to step up and lead the net zero transition and the opportunities if we get this right. As a global financial centre, London has a pivotal role to play in moving money to where it matters most.
