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 

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