‘Clean Air’ Scorecard for 2024

Clean Air’ Scorecard 2024

Clean Air in London’s (“CAL’s”) scorecard for the Mayoral and London Assembly elections on 2 May 2024 will be updated here. Version 1.0:

CAL-529-Ranking-of-Mayoral-manifestos2024_Version-1.0_020324

CAL has previously scored the manifestos of the leading candidates for Mayor of London in a Clean Air Scorecard for the elections in 2012, 2016 and 2021.

The Clean Air Scorecard judges manifesto policy commitments under six key headings (and 17 policy themes):

  1. Leadership on clean air – 2 points
  2. Build public understanding of air pollution and climate change including mitigation and adaptation – 2 points
  3. Diesel-free by 2030* – 2 points
  4. Promote active travel including pedestrianisation backed by public health campaign – 1 point
  5. Zero air emissions from buildings, renewable energy and banning incinerators – 2 points
  6. London will be the first Vegetarian Mega City by 2030 (with progress by 2028)** – 1 point

Our Clean Air Scorecard 2024 is our toughest yet because of the urgent need for bold action to address the public health and climate emergencies. We therefore shared the draft scorecard with the candidates in good time before the election so that they would have no excuse for missing any of our policy ‘asks’.

*with limited exceptions

**success would be 51% vegetarian menus and people identifying as wholly or mainly vegetarian (or vegan) by 2030.

Penalty points will be deducted for backward steps on current pollution measures e.g. proposals to scrap the Ultra Low Emission Zone in Outer London.
