Livingstone is failing on energy targets, Greens claim

London Mayor Ken Livingstone is failing to meet his energy targets across the board, the Green Party has claimed.

The London Assembly Greens have attacked the mayor for failing to meet his self-imposed targets in a number of key areas, including the standard of his own buildings.

The party claims that despite the mayor's policy of setting an 'excellent' environmental record in developments commissioned by the London Development Agency, only 17 per cent of projects have achieved this.

Livingstone has also come under fire for his Greater London Authority building's lack of renewable energy use and the paucity of new zero-carbon developments (AJ 17.11.05).

Green Party Member for the London Assembly Darren Johnson said: 'Some of the most basic targets are being missed. This is unacceptable.

'If the mayor can't persuade his own bodies to take action on climate change, it will be impossible to persuade others to take climate change seriously.'
