On Wednesday, June 23rd, we convened at Greencoat Place Meeting and Conference Centre in London to host EMISSIONS & AIR QUALITY Smart Class, South 2021, one of the first in-person events to return since the easing of restrictions commenced. This Smart Class gave a fresh take on how to deploy digital technology-enabled solutions, data-driven strategies and best practices to improve urban air quality and drive down emissions and air pollution in our cities and regions.
Our film maker has captured the keynotes and innovator presentations for additional stakeholders to enjoy post-event!
