TEC-LEDNet Joint Statement: Climate Change

  • By ArafatJalal

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:

  1. Retrofit London
  2. Low-carbon development 
  3. Halve petrol and diesel road journeys
  4. Renewable power for London 
  5. Reduce consumption emissions
  6. Build the green economy 
  7. Creating a resilient and green London

TEC and LEDNet also agreed principles to support climate-informed decision-making, in relation to governance, citizen engagement and resourcing.
