South Ken ZEN+
Leading Positive Change

South Kensington Zero Emissions Nature Positive (ZEN+) Programme is an innovative neighbourhood response to the climate and biodiversity crisis. The 22 members of the Exhibition Road Cultural Group* have joined forces to deploy their world-leading creativity and expertise in science and the arts, to develop collective approaches to tackle the greatest challenge of our age.

Why we exist

We all have an obligation to tackle climate change and reduce our emissions however we can. The South Ken Zen+ Programme will help us to accelerate collective progress by sharing knowledge, expertise and best practice. We will collaborate with our neighbours to generate beneficial impacts, economies of scale, and set examples to inspire wider change amongst the people who live, work, visit and study in this area.

Our priorities

The South Ken ZEN+ Programme will help us all go further and faster to achieve our sustainability goals by drawing on experience from across the ERCG member network. Our pooled resources and joint reporting will help us to demonstrate the progress that we are making in addressing the pressing demands of climate change. Together, we will unlock critical priority areas, and share in the benefits of creating a future-proof, sustainable neighbourhood.

A joint Toolkit for collectively reporting on progress against Net Zero and Sustainability Targets
