The mayor of London wants to make sure the city can handle the impact of climate change, calling for an independent review of its resiliency.
Mayor Sadiq Khan said in a June 12 speech during London Tech Week that the review "will gain independent insight into what more needs to be done to make London a climate resilient city."
The London Climate Resilience Review will be overseen by Emma Howard Boyd, chairwoman of the Green Finance Institute and a U.N. global ambassador for the Race to Resilience and Race to Zero campaigns.
The questions being put to London businesses and organizations include whether they have a plan to manage climate risks and if it looks at the long-term implications of climate change in London. Responses are due by Sept. 2.
London has set a target to become a net zero city by 2030, which will require infrastructure investments of £75 billion ($94.7 billion) by 2030 and up to £108 billion by 2050, according to a report from the Green Finance Institute. GFI is helping city officials set up the London Climate Finance Facility to achieve those goals.
