03. PERFORMANCE HIGHLIGHTS
During the past decade, The Partnership has provided a formal mechanism to provide enhanced leverage, investment, sustainability, profile, operational and promotional activity, scale and budget to the overall management of Fitzrovia – benefiting its member businesses and the wider community. In particular over the past two years, The Partnership worked tirelessly throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, adapting existing services to be able to offer the best response for the membership and the area as a whole.
Moving forward, Fitzrovia must be at the forefront of transitioning to a more sustainable district, working towards the goal of Carbon Net Zero. The Fitzrovia Partnership has an important leadership role to play in this. It will place sustainability at the heart of the organisation and behind activities in Fitzrovia encouraging collaboration between businesses, to drive added-value solutions for the area. This will mean leading campaigns on behalf of members to reduce the environmental impacts of conducting business, whilst improving the economic and social sustainability for businesses and other stakeholders.
The Partnership will be a key facilitator in the implementation of sustainable programmes at a local level. It will co-ordinate public-private sector partnerships to implement activities that have a greater cumulative footprint and significantly, contribute to Fitzrovia and London’s goal to become ‘cleaner, greener and ready for the future’.
In everything we do, we will continue to be ambitious, embracing the changes taking place whilst protecting what makes Fitzrovia a great place to be. We will continue to develop our work with partners and ensure that our members benefit from both a vibrant and commercially successful destination of choice.
