The Mayor's Draft London Climate Change Mitigation and Energy Strategy
Tackling climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions is a major global priority because global temperatures are rising. The UK will experience warmer and drier summers, wetter and milder winters and more frequent extreme weather. London will be very vulnerable to floods, droughts and heatwaves.
London needs to reduce its carbon emissions to mitigate climate change. The strategy outlines how to do this through schemes such as using less energy in domestic and public sector buildings, reducing carbon dioxide emissions from energy supply and encouraging low emission transport.
The Mayor’s Draft Climate Change Mitigation and Energy Strategy identifies how to create a low carbon London together with identifying opportunities for a new energy age.
The first draft strategy for consultation with the London Assembly and the Functional Bodies, was launched on 9 February 2010. A second draft will be available for public consultation in summer 2010. The final strategy will be published in late 2010/early 2011.
The Mayor is offering you the opportunity to get involved in the development of this strategy. You could help shape the direction of the strategy and ultimately help London mitigate climate change.
