Raising ambitions for a greener London
Our report Greener London, produced by a coalition of the UK’s leading environmental groups, aimed to raise the profile of environmental issues in the London mayoral election by setting out 20 practical actions for how the next mayor could help make the capital a greener, fairer and better place to live and work.
The challenges in the report were posed to four of the mayoral candidates, Zac Goldsmith, Sadiq Khan, Sian Berry and Caroline Pidgeon at our Greener London Hustings in March, chaired by LBC’s James O’Brien.
Overall, the candidates responded very positively to our challenges, all making new green commitments on solar power, the appointment of a green infrastructure commissioner and cleaner transport. And, after his election as mayor, one of Sadiq Khan’s first major announcements was a promise to act on the capital’s air pollution.
