I lobbied for divestment from fossil fuels to be included in the Labour Manifesto – which it was. Mayor Sadiq Khan has appointed new people to the London Pension Fund Board and the direction of travel is strong – a 50% reduction achieved already in fossil.
I also commissioned work through the Environment Committee on Domestic Energy & Fuel Poverty – as a result, the Mayor produced not only a Solar Action Plan, but established a fund to support Community Energy Groups and a Fuel Poverty Action Plan. I have a strong trackrecord on envrionmental isssues not just promises.
Putney High Street was selected as the site for London’s first ever Low Emission bus zone. I launched the initiative alongside Mayor Sadiq Khan and local Putney Councillors. I represent Putney residents in my current role making sure their lives are healthier and our environment is cleaner. I already hold the Council and Justine Greening to account officially. I already deliver for residents on envrionmental issues.
