Answer for Low carbon London

Answered By: 
The Mayor

More than 192,000 people work in London's low carbon goods and environmental service economy which was worth £30.4bn in 2014/15.

I intend to put in place policy and programmes that will support and further develop this sector in London and these measures will be set out in my draft environment strategy.
