Will you exclude incineration projects from using your London Climate Finance Facility?

I have set out the priority areas for my London Climate Finance Facility. It will support low carbon projects in the areas of electric vehicle infrastructure, retrofitting of social housing and public buildings, and clean local energy projects such as solar PV and district heating networks.

I have been clear that no new incineration capacity is needed to manage London’s non-recyclable waste. There is no reason for waste incineration plants to form part of the investment strategy for the London Climate Finance Facility.
