Answer for London Sustainable Development Commission

Answered By: 
The Mayor

To keep London's place as the world's leading city we must ensure we continue to grow sustainably while delivering the necessary infrastructure that makes the capital the best city to live, work and invest in. I would like the LSDC to play a vital role in delivering the London Infrastructure Plan 2050 and have invited the new Chair to join my Infrastructure Delivery Board.

London is also a renowned financial and cultural centre and is increasingly building a reputation as a technology and medical innovation centre. The capital already has a large and growing low carbon goods and services sector, therefore I would like to see the LSDC work to accelerate its growth and help to raise London's international reputation as a clean tech centre too.
