We raised green ambitions for London mayoral candidates, Zac Goldsmith, Sadiq Khan, Sian Berry and Caroline Pidgeon, following challenges made in the Greener London report and at the Greener London Hustings. All four candidates made new green commitments on solar power, the appointment of a green infrastructure commissioner and cleaner transport.
One of Sadiq Khan’s first major announcements as mayor was a promise to act on the capital’s air pollution.
Greener London was produced by a coalition of the UK’s leading environmental groups, including Green Alliance. It aimed to raise the profile of environmental issues in the London mayoral election by setting out 20 practical actions for how the next mayor could help make the capital a greener, fairer and better place to live and work.
