A network of businesses working together to tackle toxic air in Shoreditch has welcomed its 1,000 member.
The Zero Emissions Network (ZEN) has signed up Goodlord, a lettings transaction platform, to offer bespoke advice and solutions to help the business reduce their impact on air quality.
Set up by Tower Hamlets, Hackney and Islington councils, ZEN also helps businesses switch their petrol/diesel cars to either electric cars, electric bicycles or cargo bikes.
