LWARB and Advance London have new names!

08/03/21

ReLondon is LWARB, renamed – a partnership of the Mayor of London and London’s boroughs to improve waste and resource management in the capital and accelerate our transition to a low carbon circular city.

Our business support programme, Advance London, also has a new name. From today, we’ll be known as ReLondon’s Business Transformation team as we continue to make the circular economy everyone’s business.

 

Revolutionising our relationship with stuff

Our new mission is to make London a global leader in sustainable ways to live, work and prosper, by revolutionising our relationship with stuff and helping London waste less and reuse, repair, share and recycle more.

2021 is a hugely important year for climate action: COP26 is taking place in Glasgow in November, and there’s never been a more critical time for making our collective voices heard on the role that circular economy, waste reduction and recycling can and must play in tackling carbon emissions.

This is why we decided not to wait to change our name – we need a clear, compelling platform to amplify the message that consumption-based emissions and circular economy are a vital part of the fight to keep global heating to 1.5°C.

 

What does this mean for you?

We will continue to do the great work that you expect of us, but this new name now formally joins our projects, activities and teams together so we can support you in a more integrated way, bringing all our specialisms to bear on London’s challenges.

Our delivery plan for this year is currently being revisited to assess the impact of the pandemic on our priorities and targets, but we are still fundamentally here to meet our statutory objectives to reduce waste and increase recycling in London. We will also continue to focus on five key areas of consumption: food, fashion, plastics, built environment, electricals.

If you have a working relationship with one of our programmes – Resource London, Circular London or Advance London – please note that all three of these will also be operating under the name ReLondon from 8th March 2020.
