London Environment Strategy & 1.5°C Climate Action Plan

Claire Jamieson and Jazmin Burgess, Zero Carbon Policy Team, Greater London Authority – 02/07/2019 00:00 UTC   Find your time zone

London's Zero Carbon Policy Team shared its insights on the London's Environment Strategy and the accompanying 1.5ºC Compatible Climate Action Plan. Released in December 2018, with support from C40’s Deadline 2020 pilot programme, this is the city’s first strategy that brings together approaches to every aspect of London’s environment with the aim to deliver multiple benefits to Londoners, including delivering a zero carbon city. 

We learned, for example, how London used spatial models of the city's building and energy systems to assess the impact of specific policies, as well as the cost implications. The webinar also brought us closer to some of London's initiatives, such as 'London Business Climate Leaders', which brings leading businesses together to collaborate towards making a reality of London's zero carbon goals.

It commits London to being a zero carbon city by 2050. It sets out the actions the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, will take, within his powers, to get there as soon as possible.
