The UK Cities Climate Investment Commission launch event took place on Thursday 1st July 2021
Connected Places Catapult (CPC), in collaboration with UK Core Cities, and London Councils, has commissioned this piece of work to assess the Net Zero investment opportunity in UK Cities.
Eunomia Research and Consulting, and Bankers without Boundaries (BwB), have collaborated to deliver this assessment.
These Stage 1 findings are intended to present the scale of investment required to achieve Net Zero across these cities. Stage 2 of this research will assess the associated opportunities for return on investment, and necessary actions to enable finance to flow into Net Zero infrastructure.
More information on the national scale of requirements to meet Net Zero can be found in the Climate Change Committee’s Sixth Carbon Budget report, which can be found here: https://www.theccc.org.uk/publication/sixth-carbon-budget/
