Answer for Climate Week

Answer for Climate Week

Answered By: 
The Mayor

London has been a supporter of Climate Week and on the contrary to being left behind, it is showing significant climate leadership. For example, my innovative RE:FIT programme which retrofits public buildings with energy efficiency measures has been adopted by other cities and rolled out in UK schools, and my innovative decentralised energy programme model is being replicated nationally in the UK.
