A group of 41 city mayors and council leaders have committed to push for more government funding for clean energy projects in their local authorities. Regional leaders in England and Scotland, including six London boroughs, signed a pledge today (10 December) to reach net zero carbon emissions in their respective councils by 2045, five years ahead of the national deadline set out by the UK government last year. The UK100 Net Zero Pledge – an open letter signed by the councils -explains that they will target carbon neutrality across their own operations by 2030, and to work with residents and local businesses to bring overall emissions “in line with Net Zero” by 2045. The initiative has been launched in the run-up to the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26), which will take place in Glasgow in November next year.
