Reducing consumption emissions requires international cooperation. How are you pursuing this with partners through C40 Cities and other networks?

Tackling consumption emission requires working with partners both domestically and internationally and I am committed to taking action in London on this issue.

On international cooperation, my officers are in ongoing discussions with C40 to identify key opportunities for London to engage in their emerging work programme on consumption emissions. Most recently, I committed London to the C40 Good Food Declaration at the C40 Summit in Copenhagen which commits cities to tackling emissions through food consumption, in line with my Food Strategy.

My officers are also engaged in other international networks to advance action in London on consumption emissions. This includes the Carbon Neutral Cities Alliance steering group for embodied carbon which is developing a policy framework for cities, where we are inputting learnings from my London Plan policies.
