Answer for Air quality awards

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I want London to be the greatest city on Earth and the C40 awards recognised my determination to deliver improvements to London's environment by improving air quality and tackling climate change. Looking to the future, I am now consulting on my proposals for an Ultra Low Emission Zone. This will be the first of its type in the world and once again underlines my commitment and ambitions in this area.
