Item 7 - Climate Change and Green Recovery from Covid-19 (L7/20)

This report seeks to update Leaders Committee on the work that has taken place on climate change policy since the last report in December 2019 and outlines some of the changes to the programme due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

London Councils officers have been working closely with senior borough officers through LEDNet and CELC and have developed a set of eight proposals for operationalising a green recovery from Covid-19 in London.

This paper seeks comments and support from Leaders Committee for these proposals going forward.
Leaders’ Committee is asked to:

• Note and comment on the progress made on the climate change workstream;

• Comment and support the eight green recovery proposals at paragraph 15 to be progressed and aligned with the London Recovery Board through the Economic and Social elements.
