Mayors of 12 pioneering cities in zero emissions pledge

"I am absolutely committed to tackling the deadly effects of toxic air on Londoners and making London a zero carbon city," said Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London "That's why I am incredibly proud that today in London we have introduced the pioneering T-Charge, the toughest emission standard of any city in the world, which will help drive down the number of dirty vehicles polluting our roads and our lungs. We are leading the fight to clean up our filthy air and protect our citizens from the devastating consequences of climate change. I want to make London one of the greenest cities in the world - that's why I'm putting walking, cycling and zero emission public transport right at the heart of Londoners' day-to-day lives alongside energy efficient buildings, clean energy and increased recycling."
