Answered By: 
The Mayor

The current target of 60 per cent CO2 reduction on 1990 levels by 2025 was published in 2011. I will set out my approach to the 2025 target when I publish my draft London Environment Strategy in the summer.  It will set us on a path to make London a zero carbon city by 2050.
