The Environment Committee examines all aspects of the capital’s environment by reviewing the Mayor’s strategies on air quality, water, waste, climate change and energy. The committee looks at what additional measures could be taken to help improve the quality of life for Londoners and investigates topics ranging from airport expansion and HS2, to food waste and the impacts of severe weather in the capital.
Air pollution in London
What do the experts make of the Mayor’s plans to tackle air pollution in London? The committee investigates.
Domestic energy and fuel poverty
348,000 households in London are in fuel poverty and targets to reduce carbon emissions from people’s homes are not being met. The Committee is investigating what the Mayor can do to reduce domestic carbon emissions and fuel poverty in the capital.
The Committee is investigating the management of London’s green spaces, at a time when funding is decreasing and sustainability is key.
The committee responded to the Mayor's initial public consultation on his proposed air pollution action plan.
The committee questioned the Mayor’s advisers and Transport for London to gather further detail about the proposals to tackle air pollution and heard evidence from experts to learn their views on the plans.
The committee heard from a range of experts about the environmental issues and challenges currently facing the capital and which of these the Mayor should prioritise for action.
