Partnering with Opportunity London to deliver positive change


We are proud to have joined the Opportunity London partnership, to support its ambition to attract investment into London’s low-carbon built environment.

London remains the most attractive city in the world to invest, and it continues to pioneer innovation in real estate, energy and infrastructure with a commitment to reach Net Zero Carbon by 2030. Yet connecting opportunities in the Capital to investors has often been a challenge.

Opportunity London is a public-private partnership that brings together the City of London, London Councils, the Mayor of London and public and private sector partners to ease the path for investment across the city. Established by the NLA and London and Partners, the initiative strives to showcase London as a global leader in sustainability, diversity, innovation, education and finance.

Building on our commitment to creating spaces, structures and neighbourhoods that have a positive impact on the environment and improve people’s quality of life, and with our very own London presence, we look forward to supporting Opportunity London in sharing our expertise and championing London’s strengths.

Commenting on the partnership, our CEO and co-founder Stephen said: “London is the convergence of global, national, regional and local networks, serving a vast multitude of interests simultaneously. And, in an age of disruption, driven by climate change, new technologies and evolving business models, it is a beacon for innovation and sustainability.

“This complexity brings both challenges and opportunities. Opportunity London is a vital platform for connecting stakeholders, aligning policy objectives across Greater London’s local authorities, and attracting international investment. For our part as systems thinkers, offering advice, generating ideas and supporting collaboration plays to our strengths and allows us to make meaningful, constructive contributions to deliver positive change.”

Jace Tyrrell, CEO at Opportunity London, added: “London is a global diverse city of unique economic potential. By bringing together industry leaders such as Civic Engineers, we aim to showcase opportunities and unlock transformative inward investment to support its boroughs and communities.

“Stephen and the team are renowned for their commitment to creating a healthier, connected and climate-resilient future and achieving results through collaboration. And at the forefront of the low carbon, retrofit and sustainability agenda they are closely aligned with our mission. We look forward to working together to help shape London’s future.”

Earlier this year, we shared our work and insights on the Gascoigne Estate Phase Two project at Opportunity London’s stand session at MIPIM, and we look forward to supporting the partnership’s presence at UKREiiF in May, with more to follow!
