Retrofitting London’s Homes – is the capital meeting its sustainability targets?

Sponsored by Grosvenor
London has been tasked with reducing its carbon emissions by 60 per cent up to 2025, requiring a significant contribution from its existing housing stock, which currently contributes to 36 per cent of the region’s carbon emissions alone.

This NLA half-day conference will examine how successfully London is meeting its targets to retrofit its existing housing stock. We’ll present a selection of best practice case studies and innovative models currently being instigated both by the private and public sectors, update on regional and local planning policies for housing retrofit and examine progress with the practical application of the Green Deal.
