London Borough of Haringey: Towards a Zero Carbon Future


A modelling-led route map for a net-zero borough by 2041, from retrofits, renewable technology deployment and behaviour change across homes, workplaces, transport and energy generation in the borough.
Zero Carbon London

Zero Carbon London

→ Over 90% reduction in emissions by 2041 (from 2005 baseline)
→ 35% reduction in building related energy demand by 2035
→ Halving the number of petrol/diesel vehicle journeys by 2024
→ Nearly all homes to be supplied by heat pumps and low carbon district heating

Haringey council commissioned Arup to develop a trajectory and key actions that would take the borough to net zero emissions by 2050. Following the council’s declaration of a climate emergency in March 2019, this work was developed and a new target was set of 2041. Evidence-based modelling was translated into meaningful recommendations, which included deep retrofit of all council-owned housing, planning policies that demand more ambitious emissions reductions, improved active travel infrastructure and disincentives to unnecessary private car use, and programmes and policies to encourage renewable energy installation.
