About this Group

Our Successes

Haringey Council’s Pensions Committee voted to disinvest from fossil fuels. This was a direct result of the presentation of a 2,500-strong petition organised by ourselves with other green groups in the Borough.

We persuaded Haringey to oppose any fracking application in the borough. (Boris Johnson wants fracking in London, and government maps of potential fracking areas once included half of Haringey!)

We persuaded Haringey Council  to set a target to reduce CO2 emissions from the borough  by 40% by 2020, and they adopted an action plan to do this.

We have consistently lobbied our two MPs about climate change and got them to lobby their party leaders.

We have influenced some of the big developments in the borough, like Spurs and the Hale Village site at Tottenham Hale. 

We have gathered thousands of signatures on petitions to government on key issues, most recently, to save bees.

We are also working to create new wildflower meadows for bees in local parks.

We have distributed 10,000 leaflets about climate change to homes across the area.

We are part of the Sustainable Haringey network. www.sustainableharingey.org.uk
