Climate change and the demands of booming urban populations pose major challenges for the future of our planet.

Cities must be prepared to deal with the risks and impact of climate change by moving to more sustainable, zero-carbon and resilient ‘circular’ pathways.
This is a major opportunity for the emergence of a new, sustainable market that can harness the creativity, skills and economies of scale that exist within our urban environments to produce systemic solutions.
