Postcards from Brussels: Deputy Mayor keen to know more about carbon removal
Benoit Hellings, Deputy Mayor of Brussels responsible for climate (and sport), gave the walk it back campaign a warm welcome. Showing us around the city’s Town Hall — not only a beautiful building, but a living example of the city’s long history — he explained how difficult it is to heat and light ancient buildings in an efficient way. It’s a challenge that so many cities are also struggling with as they try to transform buildings constructed 500 years ago into the Net Zero era.
