Reducing pollution from buildings


Reducing pollution from buildings

Emissions from heating our homes and other buildings by burning gas, wood and coal burning are a major source of air pollution. We are already taking steps to address household emissions by supporting people to ensure their homes are more energy efficient.

Actions in the proposed Air Quality Action Plan to reduce pollution from buildings:

Emissions from homes - we will reduce pollution generated from heating and cooking with natural gas in homes, as well as in corporate, commercial and community buildings owned by the council.

Clean energy - we will help Lambeth residents and organisations in the borough to invest in clean energy in their buildings and avoid the most polluting forms of energy like burning wood.

Council homes - we will utilise grant funding to retrofit council homes, reducing gas boiler use through energy efficiency measures and where possible remove gas boilers and replace them with low carbon heating.

This engagement phase has finished
