Answered By: 
The Mayor

The London Affordable Warmth and Health Action Plan was developed by the London Network of the Home Energy Conservation Associations (HECA), at the time London Carbon Action Network (CAN).

The Plan was agreed by London HECA in January 2013. Actions referred to in the Plan that I have taken since it was agreed include:

       Promoting seasonal health interventions as evidence-backed and effective, through my soon to be published 'Better Environment, Better Health' report;

       Lobbying for a regional energy company obligation target;

       Mapping opportunities for ECO Carbon Saving Community Obligations;

       Maximising take-up of Warm Home Discount through my annual Know Your Rights campaign;

       Providing guidance and working with stakeholders to overcome energy efficiency retrofit planning barriers, including solid wall insulation, through my Toolkit for Maximising Energy Efficiency Retrofit.
