The 110 London businesses that entered the competition delivered a collective 188,000 tonnes in CO2 emission reductions, by reducing their energy usage by an amount that would be enough to power over 24,000 homes. Ten London businesses won the gold award for achieving the highest carbon energy intensity, including Arsenal Football Club’s ground, the Emirates Stadium.
