Why Connect in London?
According to the UN, around $5-7 trillion will be needed to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. In the UK alone, existing infrastructure requires an average investment of £40 billion per year, over the next 10 years, to reach net zero.

The latest insight released at COP26 says the problem may be even bigger, with $4 trillion a year needed to secure a low carbon future. There is now a critical need for the UK to drive continued momentum into 2022 if we are to stay on track with our climate ambitions.
