Answered By: 
The Mayor

As set out in my draft London Environment Strategy, I plan to implement the recommendations of Each Home Counts in London. The Each Home Counts Implementation Board is currently developing action plans to implement these recommendations, which include setting up a new quality mark and code of conduct for installers. Once the quality mark and code of conduct have been published - although there is no clear date yet for publication - I will review them to determine whether they are suitable for London's needs or if it is necessary to develop additional standards.

In the meantime, I will ensure that all my work on residential retrofit builds on learning from previous programmes, to help improve the quality of retrofits so we realise the full benefits of energy efficiency - making homes warmer and healthier, and creating skilled jobs for Londoners, as well as reducing CO2 emissions.
