Online Event: Green Logistics London: A Healthier City for All 16 Dec

Businesses, Events – Thursday, December 9th, 2021

Join Cross River Partnership (CRP) for an online, interactive session on Thursday 16th December 2021, 1:15pm – 2pm, which will explore improving air quality through micro-logistics and green deliveries in London.

Local air quality has direct impacts on both the business community and public health. CRP Business Improvement District member The Fitzrovia Partnership and transport pollution experts EMSOL will discussing their latest initiatives to combat poor air quality in London.

The Fitzrovia Partnership will be presenting on policy changes affecting Fitzrovia and how businesses operate, through their upcoming Fitzero plan. Fitzero will focus on renewables, reduction and offsetting, with opportunities for development for the area’s people, buildings and places.

EMSOL have been monitoring air pollution and noise levels associated with river freight as part of CRP’s Clean Air Villages 4 programme, a Defra-funded project led by Westminster City Council in collaboration with 26 project partners to improve the air quality across different London ‘villages’, where both air pollution and population density levels are high.

Speakers:

  • Dan Johnson, representing The Fitzrovia Partnership, will be speaking about the BID’s sustainability goals and how to achieve these through new plans into green logistics and net zero.
  • Ben Fielden, EMSOL, will be presenting on the monitoring of air quality and noise of the Guys and St Thomas’ and CEVA CAV4 river freight trial, with the aim of comparing river with road for the same journey.
  • Kate Fenton, Project Manager, Cross River Partnership, will be presenting on the progress of the Clean Air Villages 4 programme for Consolidation and Distribution strands.

This online webinar will be hosted on LiveWebinar. A Google Chrome browser is the preferred option for joining the event (details and joining link will be provided in the registration confirmation email).
