Who are we?

London Sustainability Exchange (LSx) is a “think and do” charity which creates collaborations that address the complex barriers to a sustainable London.

We work in partnership with business, government and the voluntary sector to

  • Reduce London’s environmental footprint
  • Improve the lives of London’s disadvantaged communities
  • Improve the health of Londoners
  • Improve the knowledge and skills of our communities to achieve these goals

To achieve these goals we run learning networks and innovative exemplar schemes. We also seek to influence policy and practice throughout London.

We were founded in 2001 by the City of London and a group of influential partners, who continue to shape our development.

How do we collect information from you?

We do not routinely collect or hold information about people unless where it serves a specific purpose for a project and you have given your explicit consent for us to do so. All information we do collect is done explicitly and given voluntarily.

Our website does not collect, track or store any of your personal information other than that which you voluntarily submit in our contact forms (usually just name and email).

What type of information is collected from you?

Our website does not collect any personal information about you other than that which you voluntarily submit on any of our contact forms (usually name and email only). No IP address is collected, and any configurations for IP addresses collected via contact forms are removed.

Your information will be used for the specific purpose(s) for which it was collected as agreed by you on point of collection.

This may include:

  • Sending your our bulletin communications, notifying you of relevant events, projects and opportunities by email
  • Processing a donation that you have made
  • Responding to questions and enquires that you have submitted
  • Processing job or volunteer applications

We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity or for longer where our contractors require.

Who has access to your information?

We will not give, sell or rent your information to any third party organisation without your explicit permission.

We will not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.

We will only transfer your personal information to a third party as part of a project where explicitly expressed, or if we’re under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation or to enforce or apply our terms of use or to protect the rights, property or safety of our supporters and customers.

You have a choice about whether or not you wish to receive information from us.

You can change your contact preferences at any time by contacting us by email: info@lsx.org.uk or telephone 0207234 9400.

Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information

When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely.

Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
