Haringey does its bit to save the planet

By Russ Lawrence in Local People

The borough is doing its bit to save the planet and combat global warming by slashing greenhouse gas emissions.

Carbon dioxide emissions have been cut by more than a third in Haringey over the past 10 years according the council’s annual emissions report.

More energy-efficient homes as well as grants to make businesses more eco-friendly have helped reduce the borough’s carbon footprint putting it on track to be a zero carbon borough by 2050.

“The reduction is thanks to innovative projects like Smart Homes and Smart Business,” said Joe Goldberg, Haringey’s Cabinet Member for Economic Development, Social Inclusion and Sustainability

“Smart Homes has funded energy-saving home improvements for over 300 households and created 65 new jobs since 2014 and energy-efficiency grants from our Smart Business project have saved firms hundreds of pounds a year.”

"We believe carbon reduction and economic growth must go hand in hand and will continue to cut emissions while delivering one of the largest regeneration schemes in the country with thousands of new homes and new jobs,” he added.
