We are committed to limiting further climate change by reducing the amount of CO2 London produces. The Mayor’s climate change mitigation and energy strategy sets out the programmes and activities underway across London to achieve this.
A strategic approach to climate mitigation
To limit further climate change in London and globally, the Mayor has set a target to reduce London’s CO2 emissions by 60 per cent of 1990 levels by 2025.
In October 2011, we published Delivering London’s Energy Future: The Mayor’s climate change mitigation and energy strategy. This details the Mayor’s strategic approach to meeting his CO2 target and securing a low carbon energy supply for London.
Delivering London’s Energy Future sets out the work going on to reduce London’s CO2 emissions. As 80 per cent of London’s buildings will still be standing in 2050, and nearly 80 per cent of CO2 emissions produced in London are from buildings, retrofitting London is a central focus of the strategy. Retrofitting programmes include:
- RE:NEW – retrofitting London’s homes with energy efficiency measures, and helping Londoners save money on their energy bills.
- RE:FIT – retrofitting London’s public sector buildings, saving millions of pounds every year.
- RE:CONNECT – ten low carbon zones across London aiming to reduce CO2 emissions by 20% by 2012 across the community.
- Decentralised energy programme – supplying 25 per cent of London’s energy from secure, low carbon local sources.
