London Mayor Sadiq Khan has committed to get the city to net-zero by 2030. Barber began her talk by calling this target, “both scary and utterly motivating”. Adding, “although it's difficult, it's the only thing that is proportional to the climate crisis.”

The city leads in climate action, referring to the Mayor, Barber said, “He's chair of the C40 network of global cities, he's saying this on a global stage. That's why he's declared a climate emergency and why we're so glad that in this London Climate Action Week, so many people are mobilising around this cause”, confirming that, “this week is really about action.”
