In November 2019, the Transport and Environment Committee (TEC) and London Environment Directors' Network (LEDNet) met to discuss the climate emergency. From this meeting, a joint statement was prepared, capturing the outcomes and agreement at that meeting.
The joint statement shows that Directors and cabinet members identified a need to act rapidly and collectively on climate change, and support six priority programmes that boroughs should work together to deliver:
- Retrofit London
- Low-carbon development
- Halve petrol and diesel road journeys
- Renewable power for London
- Reduce consumption emissions
- Build the green economy
TEC and LEDNet also agreed principles to support climate-informed decision-making, in relation to governance, citizen engagement and resourcing.
