London to be zero carbon city by 2050

New Delhi, Oct 7 (UNI) London has drawn up an elaborate plan to make the city zero carbon by 2050.
The Londoners have set to themselves a number of tasks and made several commitments and resolution that will lead to final plan.
The World Health Organisation recommends an upper limit on fine particulate matter (PM2.5) of 10 mg per cubic meter and this is the target the capital of England plans to reach by 2030, a UNEP statement said.
London has joined the BreatheLife network early this week becoming the world’s first mega city to commit to reaching the World Health Organisation’s air quality guidelines.
The city's plan to meet this target is backed by serious science and stakeholder consensus. The city’s air quality strategy centres around another ambitious target that is becoming a zero carbon city by 2050.
To achieve this target, London’s has set a vision and strategy for cleaner air which includes that by 2041, Londoners will make 80 per cent of their trips on foot, by bicycle or by public transport.
Moreover, all taxis and cars-for-hire will be zero emission by 2033, buses by 2037, all new road vehicles by 2040 and the whole transport system will be zero emission by 2050.
As a part of its strategy, London plans to develop a resilient, low or zero carbon energy infrastructure that allows the city to generate more of its own energy that is secure and scalable in the long run.
The city also plans a “Healthy Streets” approach by cutting down on car traffic to make local streets more pleasant for pedestrians besides building the biodiesel industry to fuel government-owned vehicles, which is also good for green jobs.
On 11 August, London Mayor Sadiq Khan published a draft of the London Environment Strategy. This plan is open for public comment until November 17.
