An advocate for city leaders and urban investors
The UK Cities Commission for Climate Investment (3Ci) is a partnership between Connected Places Catapult, Core Cities, London Councils and a wide range of other private and public organisations.
3Ci adopts a novel approach to addressing the challenge of financing Net Zero in major cities across the UK. Through new research delivered by the 3Ci, we estimate that approximately £200 - £300 billion must be invested to achieve Net Zero across London and UK Core Cities. This is beyond the financing capacity of the public sector alone. 3Ci brings together the investment sector with cities to accelerate the opportunities for private finance to play a leading role in accelerating Net Zero infrastructure investment across commercial real-estate, housing, transport, renewable electricity generation, waste management and other green infrastructure
Connected Places Catapult is the UK’s innovation accelerator for cities, transport, and place leadership.
