London firms praised for green efforts

London mayor Boris Johnson has congratulated more than 150 of the capital's businesses for actively 'going green'.

He thanked the firms at a City Hall event where he praised their success in saving thousands of pounds off their energy bills.

Mr Johnson also thanked the companies for their efforts in cutting carbon emissions which he said will help to boost the capital's global competitive edge.

"In lean economic times, there are real financial savings to be made for businesses by becoming more energy efficient, helping them to remain competitive," Mr Johnson explained.

"Creating a low carbon, clean and more pleasant city that exploits new 'green' technologies is a key part of my vision to help London through the downturn.

"An attractive, less polluted city is a place where people will want to live, work and visit."

London Development Agency group director for design, development and environment Peter Bishop added that climate change will impact on the quality of life of all Londoners and it was therefore crucial that firms work towards going green.
