UK's first 'green homes' initiative launched in London
Britain's first 'green homes' initiative has been launched in London, to help homeowners make their homes more efficient.

The service will offer Londoners a one-stop shop for information on energy efficiency and reducing their carbon footprint, aiming to help them lead a low carbon lifestyle and save money on their energy bills.

Measures to be introduced as part of the flagship scheme include a free telephone advice service, a free website and a paid-for green 'concierge' service, aiming to assess a residential property's carbon impact and help homeowners make environmentally beneficial changes.

Ken Livingstone, the mayor of London, said: "There are simple changes we can make to cut energy use without any reduction in our quality of life - indeed the average household."

"We know Londoners want to help prevent climate change, and London Green Homes will provide the information and on-going support to enable them do so," he added.

Last month the government announced that the Green Homes Service will be rolled out across the UK from April 2008, to help contribute to its aim of reducing the UK's carbon emissions by up to 60 per cent before 2050.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18382870-ADNFCR
