Continuing our ten year anniversary theme, we look at climate change – ten years on: what have we learnt and what are we doing differently now compared to ten years ago? Scroll down for more.

And recent news that caught our eye was London’s pledge to be carbon neutral by 2030Delta’s plan to be the first carbon neutral airline and RBS rebrands as NatWest.

LCMB 10th Birthday Feature

Climate Change Ten years on

Co2 Concentation






To mark our tenth birthday, we’re exploring key themes around buildings, energy and wellbeing.

This month, we examine climate change over the last ten years.

Even in this small window of time, climate change has accelerated. Atmospheric COlevels are higher than ever before, the hottest years on record have occurred in the last six years and we’re seeing more and more extreme events such as heatwaves, wildfires, storms and floods.

For things to really change for the better, three things must happen.

  1. More countries and organisations must declare a climate emergency, and commit to making a change.
  2. We need to see more innovations to help mitigate climate change.
  3. Each one of us should change our behaviour to a deeper and more consistent level. It’s encouraging that Sadiq Kahn and RBS (see news below) are betting on widespread support to curb climate change.

In the News

Khan’s £50m pledge for London to be carbon neutral by 2030




London mayor Sadiq Khan is to spend £50m on a Green New Deal for London as part of a pledge to make the UK capital carbon neutral by 2030. We think it’s encouraging to see Mr Khan betting on climate change concerns to win votes. Read the story in The Guardian.

Delta announces $1bn plan to be first carbon neutral airline





Delta intends to become the first carbon-neutral airline globally while helping to fund research and projects involving clean air technologies and the reduction of carbon emissions and waste. This is promising news coming from the industry and we hope other airlines follow suit. We are excited to see more of a focus on new technologies rather than simply carbon offsetting emissions. Find out more on Reuters.

RBS rebrands as Natwest




RBS is on the charm offensive to leave the “toxic” RBS brand behind. Part of the strategy to rebrand involves trying to combat climate change.

NatWest will rival Lloyds Banking Group’s recent pledge to halve the emissions linked to its loan book over the next decade. This means among other actions, cutting lending and underwriting services to major oil and gas producers that don’t have credible transition plans in line with Paris climate agreement targets.

Case Studies

LCMB's accelerated ROI audit

Too many organisations spend large sums of money on the wrong initiatives that generate a poor return or even a loss.

This is why we created the LCMB accelerated ROI audit. It cuts through the noise and quickly, clearly identifies the untapped performance improvement areas within your buildings.

The audit uncovers operational inefficiencies such as under-utilised space and facilities, as well as cost and energy reduction opportunities, and then provides a clear plan for realising potential.

By implementing the plan, we guarantee the audit pays for itself within 6 months and thereafter generates a positive return.

Contact John O’Brien on 01295 722823  [email protected] to discuss how the LCMB accelerated ROI audit can improve your organisation performance and return on investment.
