Supporting industries that help the environment

Mayor Sadiq Khan has already taken bold action to transform London’s environment. He continues to focus on issues affecting the health and wellbeing of Londoners such as: air quality, climate change and energy, waste, green infrastructure and noise.

An important part of this plan is supporting CleanTech and low carbon businesses - who provide goods and services that are better for our environment.

Growing the low carbon and CleanTech sectors

The Mayor and partners, with backing from the European Regional Development Fund, have launched Better Futures - a £1.6 million programme to support over 100 small CleanTech businesses in London.

These business will receive fantastic support including:

  • leadership and management
  • access to coworking space
  • marketing, supply chain and product development
  • public and private funding

We are also looking to develop an area in West London, dedicated to the CleanTech sector and exploring ideas like: a centre for CleanTech Innovation and a manufacturing facility to help budding firms prototype their innovations.

The Mayor is already supporting regeneration and development of this area with the
Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC).
