The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has appointed ten new commissioners, including E3G's own Nick Mabey, to the London Sustainable Development Commission (LSDC) following a formal recruitment process.
The new commissioners will serve alongside the newly appointed Chair, Dr Ashok Sinha, and existing commissioners, to help the city meet the challenges of a rapidly growing population, rising inequality and mitigating climate change.
The LSDC was established in 2002 to advise the Mayor of London on sustainability issues including ways to improve and protect Londoners' quality of life, now and in the future.
The new-look Commission will focus on promoting good economic growth, improving the quality of life for all Londoners while respecting the environment and promoting social cohesion and inclusion.
The Commission will strive to ensure sustainability is at the core of policies and strategies impacting London and will help make sustainability a meaningful concept for Londoners.
