The Mayor's draft Climate Change Mitigation and Energy Strategy and Municipal and Business Waste Management Strategies are now available for public consultation.

Climate Change Mitigation and Energy
The Mayor's vision is that by 2025, London is one of the world's leading low carbon cities, with a thriving low carbon economy, some of the world's most energy efficient buildings, a secure and efficient energy supply, and world class low carbon transport.

The strategy aims to:

  • reduce carbon dioxide emissions to mitigate climate change
  • maximise economic opportunities from the transition to a low carbon capital
  • ensure a secure and reliable energy supply for London
  • meet, and where possible exceed, national climate change and energy objectives

To support Londoners in playing their part in cutting carbon dioxide emissions the Mayor is rolling out RE:NEW, a programme to help Londoners save energy and money on their energy bills at home. The Mayor's ambition is that every home will get energy saving measures in their homes by 2030.

Municipal and Business Waste Management
The Mayor wants a step change in the way both Londoners and the city's businesses manage their waste, a change that will see London lead the way into a more efficient future. This means revolutionising our cultural norms; from our consumer and producer choices through to how we dispose of the waste we necessarily create, all the way down to how it is eventually treated.

Waste management, although perhaps not the sexiest issue is something that affects everyone - it has both widespread economic and environmental implications in terms of job creation, providing low-carbon energy and keeping our streets clean and tidy. The Mayor is committed to promoting and supporting the key role Londoners have to play in reducing, reusing and recycling their waste, and the central role of the public and private sector in delivering effective management and infrastructure solutions.

To make sure the Mayor is doing everything he can to support this, please take five minutes to tell the GLA what you think. To read the full strategy or summary and have your say click here.
