Sustainable Cities Leadership Summit: summary of outputs and next steps

In January 2017, UK-GBC held a one day conference in Leeds in association with Core Cities UK, to bring together public and private sector leaders to accelerate action on sustainable cities.

The purpose of the event was to accelerate action on sustainable cities, by asking the question:

“How can policy-makers and the private sector work in partnership to deliver environmentally sustainable places to live and work, which support both quality of life and economic growth?”

The Summit objectives were, in summary:

  • Demonstrate a shared vision and commitment to sustainability in the built environment
  • Share strategic insights on how to turn vision into reality
  • Help define and shape the opportunities presented by the current political context

An output report, summarising discussions and setting out next steps is available here.
