787368_statue.jpgIt is actually the older generation that is leading the way. According to SimplySwitch research, almost 57 percent of over-55s have installed energy efficiency measures, far more than in other age-groups. For example, while 72 percent of under-34s ‘try to be as energy efficient as possible’; just 35 percent had actually installed energy-saving devices.

    What is the City of London doing to encourage its resident corporations to simply use less? Case in point: Making it normal for company reports and presentation documents to be printed both sides of the page (and preferably on recycled paper). Also getting invoices and other forms redesigned to use less wasted ‘white space’ and unnecessary lines in order to print out on fewer pages – all significantly reducing the amount of paper used – which actually has a cost saving too. Getting companies with a presence in the City to do this type of thing across their global operations.

    What is the City of London doing to change the mindset of its resident corporations to make the same everyday steps to be greener that individual consumers are? A company policy to use energy efficient lightbulbs only across global sites?

    With a huge unmet demand for food growing space from the population in the area, are the City of London looking into alternative growing space such as Green Rooves?

    This ‘demand’ can be referenced by the London Assembly document ‘A Lot to Lose’. I think they are doing stuff but i would like to hear more about it.
