LEAERSTF: London Energy and Air Emissions Reduction Strategy Task Force.
The Task Force report is in response to the recommendation by ETC that the City of London develop an energy/air emission reduction strategy with the overall goal of reducing CO2 emissions and smog so as to improve the air quality in the City of London and reduce global warming. This report (in combination with the 1995 Air Emissions Study commissioned by the City) presents an Action Plan that includes measures to achieve energy and air emissions reductions and monitor future emissions.

The Task Force Recommendations have led to City Council approving a new Energy Management Coordinator who will work from the Health Unit.
Here are some sample figures regarding past, present and future energy use and equivalent CO2 emissions in London (click on the thumbnail for a full size image).
You can make a contribution to this task force and to the environment in London by reducing your energy use and pollutant emissions.
Your contribution will also benefit the global environment; CO2 is a well mixed gas in the atmosphere, therefore local action will contribute to the global environment.
