2025As part of Stratford’s regeneration, IQL is a place that builds on the legacy of the 2012 London Olympic Games: curated public spaces; sustainable workspaces designed with wellbeing in mind; an abundance of biodiversity initiatives; and a low carbon energy centre fuelling surrounding homes, workplaces and commercial buildings. It’s a place where both people and nature can flourish together today, and for generations to come.
2040Mission Zero consolidates our commitment to Sustainability and the target tackles the biggest threat to our planet: climate change. As a stepping stone to ABSOLUTE zero by 2040, we have also made it our mission to reach net zero carbon on scope 1 and scope 2 emissions by 2025. Find out all about Mission Zero at the Lendlease website.
IQL has 560 acres of rolling green space. The park has over 6,000 trees, many of which are London Plane trees; a type of tree which is proven to absorb pollutants from our air. It also has a variety of plants which in turn bring new species of insect and bird to the park, increasing Stratford’s natural biodiversity. But above all this, the park is a place for people. There’s plenty to do, with specially curated routes and trails for runners and meanderers alike. It’s a haven in the City; a space that’s making Stratford a cleaner and more pleasant place to be.
Low Carbon Energy
Our buildings are designed to benefit from the Stratford District Heating and Cooling network which comprises of two energy centres that use biomass boilers. This means that IQL and its neighbours are supplied with low-carbon, efficiently produced energy. It is currently the largest decentralised energy scheme in the UK.
The Pavilion at IQL is a stellar example of construction that’s conscious of Sustainability. The new home of D&D London, the Pavilion, is a hub for the community. A landscaped, central point for Stratford where people can congregate, relax, dine and meet. The building itself is made almost entirely from sustainably sourced timber and during construction, procedures were put in place to reduce waste on site. It acts as one of IQL’s “third spaces” offering employees from nearby buildings the opportunity to work outdoors in the outdoor amphitheatre, while the rooftop of the building is open to the public to enjoy the magnificent views stretching across London.
