Speakers Confirmed:

Join us at 3ppp’s leading 3rd annual Low Carbon Britain conference.

Low Carbon Britain 2017 Developing a Smart, Resilient, Digital Society is a unique conference that will address Great Britain's current carbon reduction position and allow us to hear from those leading and driving the policies and proposals. One of the main focuses of the conference is to discuss how public sector along with towns, villages and cities can reduce their carbon emissions. The current situation will be highlighted and a discussion surrounding how this can be improved and delivered will play an imperative part within the conference.

"Partnerships” are vital in overcoming the challenges and in discovering new opportunities.

June 30th 2016, the UK has set a new ambitious 2030 carbon target. The UK is looking at reducing carbon emissions of 57% by 2030 on 1990 levels.

This commitment should ease nerves and anxieties in the energy sector. It is an important step forward and all public, private and third sector parties welcomed the news and the clarity it provided. John Sauven, Greenpeace UK Director highlighted “the government has kept its word to adopt this important target to limit the UK’s carbon emissions”.

The government must now bring forward the policy and strategy of how these emissions can be reduced. The target covers reductions between 2028 and 2032 and means no more than 1.725m metric tons of carbon dioxide can be emitted during that period. In 2015, the UK emitted 497MtCO2e.

The Committee on Climate Change did calculate that the governments targets for low carbon energy are on track but suggested that a new approach is needed on CO2 emissions from housing as well as agriculture and transport – two sectors where emissions are growing.

Former DECC secretary Amber Rudd said, “Climate change remained one of the most serious long term risks to the economy”. The UK will not turn their back on Europe or the world. Whilst the UK ‘s role in dealing with a warming planet may be harder now due to the Brexit decision but the commitment to deal with climate change has not disappeared.

What impact will BREXIT have on Britain's carbon reduction plans? With the abolishment of DECC and the formation of the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy; what does this mean for Britain's priorities towards meeting the emissions reduction targets and the drive towards a low carbon economy?

Greg Clark, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Secretary stated: “I am thrilled to have been appointed to lead this new department charged with delivering a comprehensive industrial strategy, leading government’s relationship with business, furthering our world-class science base, delivering affordable, clean energy and tackling climate change.”

Britain’s cities are currently exploring ways to harness the power of data and technology to make their cities a better place to live, work and play. Cities and their citizens generate a huge amount of data, which can be used in smart ways to achieve big things. A city is nothing without its people, so where better to explore how we can fuse open data and technology to make a real difference to lives of citizens. “Smart cities are the future and we want to make sure our cities are equipped to deliver for their citizens of Britain. This means being smart about how we use data and technology to improve services, promote innovation and empower people and communities.”

Draft London Environment Strategy - have your say

On 11 August Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, published his draft London Environment Strategy. The Mayor is taking a range of actions to improve the environment now, setting London on the path to create a better future

Our public consultation on these plans is now open until 17th November – take part and give us your views.

The state of London’s environment affects everyone who lives in and visits the city – it helps Londoners to stay healthy, makes London a good place to work and keeps the city functioning from day to day.

Today London is facing a host of environmental challenges. Toxic air, noise pollution, the threat to our green spaces, and the adverse effects of climate change, all pose major risks to the health and wellbeing of Londoners.

We need to act now to tackle the most urgent environmental challenges facing our city as well as safeguard London’s environment over the longer term. We need to ensure that London is greener, cleaner and ready for the future.

This is the first strategy to bring together approaches to every aspect of London’s environment. It is divided into the following areas:

  • Air quality
  • Green infrastructure
  • Climate change mitigation and energy
  • Waste
  • Adapting to climate change
  • Ambient noise

By making cities smarter automatically lowers carbon emissions within cities, this conference will underline an array of solutions and throughout the day a number of excellent case studies will be showcased.

Low Carbon Britain 2017 Developing a Smart, Resilient, Digital Society will be an opportunity for you to be part of this inspiring journey.

BUILDING INSULATION
Thanks to new construction methods and improvements in building insulation, buildings are extremely air tight. Contaminants stagnate in the environments and systems for air renewal and purification become necessary.

INDOOR AND OUTDOOR POLLUTION
Human health is severely damaged by the many indoor pollutants such as mold, smoke, dust, CO2 emissions, and by external pollutants like pollen, PM10, viruses and bacteria.

Constituted as the North East of Scotland Transport Partnership under the Transport (Scotland) Act 2005, Nestrans began work as a statutory Transport Partnership on 1 April 2006. It is one of seven Transport Partnerships set up across Scotland to provide a co-ordinated approach to transport planning and delivery between different local authority areas.

Nestrans' area covers both the City of Aberdeen and the wider Aberdeenshire area. Its Board is made up of Councillors from Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire Councils, as well as non-councillor members appointed by the Minister for Transport.

The new Partnership builds on five years of voluntary partnership working between Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire Councils, Scottish Enterprise Grampian and Aberdeen and Grampian Chamber of Commerce. These bodies came together to form the 'original' Nestrans in 2001 as a means of working together to tackle the transport challenges in the north east and develop the Modern Transport System strategy.

We operate five divisions which draw on common skills and expertise, but which are varied by geography, customer base and a mix of contract and passenger revenue. Our broad footprint in the UK and North America gives us experience of two of the most developed markets in the world for transport services, and a breadth of expertise across different regulatory and contractual environments.

This means we can be confident that, whatever the specific transport challenge is, somewhere across our business we have already identified and implemented a solution which will work.

We have a competitive advantage as a result of our scale and the diversity of our portfolio of businesses: We design and operate hundreds of networks in partnership with our communities, procure, maintain and operate around 69,000 vehicles; hire, train and manage 110,000 employees; and transported 2.2 billion passengers last year.

Our overall strategy is to leverage our scale and the breadth of our global expertise for the benefit of our local markets. Somewhere in our operation we have already developed best practice for virtually every element of our work. And if we haven’t yet, we have the breadth of employee knowledge and experience to know where to find it.

The European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) is responsible for management of the EU funding which is dedicated to regional development. Establishment of this regional fund was proposed by the United Kingdom in 1972, one year before the country became the member state of the European Union. The UK’s proposal was accepted and the ERDF was to be set up by 1973, however, it was not established until 1975 due to the 1973 oil crisis. When established, it was given a budget of 1.4 billion European units of account (the precursor of the European Currency Unit and later the euro) although Britain suggested a much higher budget. But over years, the ERDF budget increased dramatically and according to the 2007-2013 regional funding period, the UK alone is entitled to over 3 billion euros for regional development projects.
